LIVERPOOL WATERFRONT

Open Eye Gallery is located at the heart of the Liverpool Waterfront, a short walk from the Liverpool One shopping centre and the Albert Dock. The gallery is part of the new Mann Island development, a complex of three black buildings that sit between the Strand, the Canning dock and the new Museum of Liverpool. Our entrance is on the ground floor of Mann Island, in a covered public courtyard which can be entered from the south side (facing the Museum of Liverpool) or the north side (facing Mann Island and the Liver Building).

By train
We are 20 minutes walk from Lime Street station – Liverpool’s mainline railway station.

James Street station, served by Wirral Line trains, is a two minute walk. Moorfields station, served by the Northern and Wirral Lines, is a five minute walk.

The nearest bus station is at Liverpool ONE, but some buses drop off at the Pier Head, right next door to the gallery. Merseytravel has details of local bus services.

By ferry
The gallery is two minutes walk from the Pier Head Ferry Terminal, from which
