The peninsula is bounded by Scoresby Sund in the south, Carlsberg Fjord in the northwest, Kangerterajiva (Hurry Inlet) in the southwest, the Greenland Sea in the east, and Jameson Land in the west. It was named by William Scoresby, who thought that Hurry Inlet had a confluence with Carlsberg Fjord, separating Liverpool Land from Jameson Land. The fjord-rich peninsula is 125 km (78 mi) long from Kap Greville in the north to Uunarteq (Danish: Kap Tobin) in the south, up to 40 km (25 mi) wide, and measures about 3,000 km2 (1,200 sq mi) in area. It is connected to Jameson Land over a length of 35 km (22 mi).
A large part of Liverpool Land is mountainous, the Didrik Pining Range and the Heywood Range are located in the peninsula. Warming Island is located approximately 700 m (2,300 ft) off the northeastern tip of Liverpool Land. Storefjord indents the peninsula from the east about 25 km (16 mi), almost cutting it into two.
