    We would like to visit Liverpool sometime, I've seen somewhere that you can park up over night in Kings Dock car & coach park. Has anyone stopped over night there? Thanks

    The only reason the Beatles lived in a yellow submarine was so no one could steal their wheels,

    Hi.
    Although i love Liverpool and "Scousers" and lots of good things have been done in the 'Pool. In the early 70's we would run out of l/pool and park up in Warrington for the night,running back in next morning to tip/reload and away again.
    If it was me,i would find a nice little site a bit away and use that, i do NOT wish to upset any of the natives,it was, in the 60/70's ,a case of self preservation LOL.Best of luck.

    Hi you can park down at the docks, can't remember what they're called, the have a hotel at the car park and a McDonalds across from the entrance. A couple of years ago I was running the half marathon and stayed here overnight, once I had drove in a security guard turned up with in 5 mins to say I was welcome to stay as long as I paid think it was about £8 for 24 hours. He told me I'd be safe as they would watch me on the CCTV as the site is monitored 24/7.

    Perhaps not one of my better ideas then, but aren't you stereotyping Scousers it like say all Scottish and Yorkshire men are tightfisted . Mind now that is true:eek:

    Dont have a clue about all this anti Scouse talk. My motorhome is parked there for around 5 months of the year with no problems. No one has managed to get past the electric fence and razor wire yet.

    Hi Snowbird./cruiser
    The rabbit that lives closest to the fox' den is has the best chance of not getting eaten,the thought being,the fox know's it is there when times get hard so spares it.... LOL. A mate of mine livid in a.... "Unusual ?" part of Southampton he was safe,but said whenever he had a new to himself car,he had to drive it around the estate slowly waving and chatting with the ,"Motley Crew ". LOL. Then they knew it was one of theirs.
    What can you say,when empty, backing up on your sheets with the drive axle in Bootle and an old hand says," You are inviting trouble,they may NOT ? pinch them,but seeing that they may just slash them out of spite.
    PS. You don't know a "Tammy Sloane" do you,drank in the Eagle and Child,won a boxing cup and daren't tell his wife....... TRUE.... Oh Thrice LOL You could not make it up

    Take your own pile of bricks and put them in each corner, to save them about 20 seconds, to lessen the disturbance to you whilst you sleep.

    When I worked for a large company the Liverpool branch manager had the oldest car at 10 years old this was after he had a a newish car which firstly had a set of alloys nicked, when these were replaced with steel wheels they came back and nicked the car !!! we recompenced him for having the oldest car on the company. should say that was over 10 years ago though, may have changed

    Great City Liverpool lots to see and do, don't be put off by jokes/negative comments, As for parking why not not think about wilding at Harrison drive New Brighton on the Wirral, quite a lot do it and at the other end there's a bus service every 10 minutes into the centre of Liverpool. Any more info just ask

    Do not listen to these comments about Liverpool and steeling wheels. It is a complete myth especially at this time of year. All the crews who normally wander around Liverpool nicking wheels are currently working with formula 1 pit crews 2.4 seconds for all four.

    Such bravery/stupidity, not sure which. It will be nicked and sold on Ebay before you wake up.
