Cressington railway station is located near the banks of the River Mersey just a few miles south of the centre of Liverpool and serves the city’s Grassendale neighbourhood. It was opened in the mid-19th century as a stop along the Garston and Liverpool Railway Line but was later absorbed as part of the Cheshire Lines. It closed for 6 years in the ‘70s, but later reopened as part of the Merseyrail system. It stands as one of the prettiest examples of British train stations with an old Grade II listed red brick ticket office and stone bridge. Today, unlike many stations, it is still staffed, and facilities include passenger information screens, bicycle storage, a free adjoining car parkand a waiting room. It’s managed, along with the trains that pass through, by Merseyrail and its two platforms sit next to the Northern Line on the Southport-Hunts Cross route. It’s a busy commuter station with four services an hour direct to Hunts Cross in 8 minutes and Liverpool Central in 11 minutes.  

When you step off the train at Cressington, you’ll just be a stone’s throw away from a ton of restaurants and the Long Lane Recreation Ground. If it’s a sunny day, try to score some tickets for the Liverpool Cricket Club. If not, it’s still worth a visit to make use of the squash, tennis, or hockey facilities.
