Getting here // Everyman theatre
5-11 Hope Street
On Hope Street, between the two cathedrals, the new Everyman opened in March 2014 to great acclaim from audiences and critics, winning the 2014 RIBA Stirling Prize for architecture. Accessible and environmentally sustainable, the new theatre combines the trademark wrap-around auditorium and basement bistro with many new facilities. The Everyman is easily accessible by bus, train, car and citybike. Since we’re striving to be a greener business, we hope you’ll consider the impact of your travel when you visit.
Travelling by citybike
With bike stations across the city and at Lime Street Station, there are two stations by the Everyman; opposite the theatre on the corner of Hope Street and Mount Pleasant and next to the Metropolitan Cathedral steps. Tariff packages are available from £3 per day, £9 for a week or £60 for a year. Find out more about citybike.
Citybike is an initiative by Liverpool City Council, part-funded by the Department for Transport and operated by Hourbike Ltd.
