The Pier Head Village is taking over the Pier Head this summer, as attractions, events and stalls come to Liverpool’s most iconic waterfront.

In the heart of the city, the festival is accessible by foot, car and public transport, meaning it is the perfect location for a family day out in the sunshine!


James Street station is just five minutes walk from the Pier Head and can be accessed directly via the New Brighton, West Kirby and Chester lines.
