No Car? Want to visit the safari? No problem! The park is close to a number of public transport links, making travelling easy for those without their own vehicle. And once you’re here, our Baboon Bus runs on weekends and school holidays!
Prescot train and bus stations are only a few minutes drive from the park. Trains arrive at Prescot Station from Liverpool Lime Street every 30 mins, or the No. 10 bus travels between Liverpool & St Helens every 10 mins during weekdays and 30 mins at weekends.
We highly recommend that visitors arriving by public transport make use of local taxi firms for the short trip between local transport hubs and the park, as we are located off the busy A58 bypass.
