Closest train station to Anfield for Taylor Swift Eras Tour

The week is finally upon us when Taylor Swift will be taking over Anfield for three days from Thursday, June 13 to Saturday, June 15.

More than 150,000 people from across the world are expected to descend on Liverpool for the Eras Tour. With road closures surrounding Anfield stadium and increased crowds expected, the easiest way to get to the concert may be by public transport.

Travelling by train means Swifties can avoid the traffic and stress of parking near the stadium. There are two train stations within walking distance to Taylor Swift's Eras Tour in Liverpool.
