One of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the North of England, Liverpool has plenty to offer Muay Thai enthusiasts looking to train. 

I’ve picked out the top 6 places in the city that you should seriously consider if you want to start training. When choosing a new Muay Thai gym, it’s essential to keep a few things in mind, so I’ll be covering the following areas for each entry:

  • Location – Where is it?
  • Transport links – How easy is it to get there?
  • Prices – Is it good value for money? Do they offer a free trial class?
