Hotels Near Goodison Park…
One of the most frequently asked questions on our forums during the season is “what’s the best hotels in Liverpool for the match”
Everton’s expert tour guides will provide an insightful trip through the history of the world’s oldest purpose-built football stadium and one of the most pioneering clubs in the English game.
As part of a revamped behind-the-scenes tour, visitors will get access to the players’ changing rooms – both home and away, take in the view from the Directors’ Box, understand what happens in the Dixie Dean suite on a matchday, walk the tunnel to the sound of Z Cars and emerge onto the touchline taking in the view from the dugout and technical area.
Booking in advance is required. Everton stadium tours do not operate on a home matchday and only Legends Tours operate the day before a first-team home fixture – find out more here.
Pubs Near Goodison Park
Which is the best match-day pub around Goodison?
If it’s tradition and atmosphere that you are after then look no further than the Winslow pub; located right next to Goodison Park. The Winslow has long been Everton’s iconic pub and is very popular on match days. If the Winslow is too busy for your tastes and it may well be; try walking a little further up the road to ‘The Brick’, another pub favoured by Everton fans and full of songs and atmosphere. For Away fans many choose to frequent pubs in the city center before travelling to the ground, although The Thomas Frost (Wetherspoons) pub is near the stadium and welcoming!
Other pubs near Goodison Park include The Spellow, The Taxi Club, The Black Horse, The Harlech, The Barlow Arms, The Royal Oak, The Elm Tree and The Albany.
