Liverpool is preparing for a large influx of hundreds and thousands of visitors across all four days, and traffic measures, road closures and temporary changes to public transport in and out of the city will be in effect. We advise individual visitors and group tour operators travelling to the Terracotta Warriors exhibition to consult in advance of their visit, and plan their journeys accordingly leaving plenty of time to travel.
