Manchester to Liverpool by train

by CALSF

Is it advisable to buy the train tickets from Manchester to Liverpool in advance? Or can we wait and buy them at the train station? Travel can only be done on a Sunday (June).

Thanks.

Re: Manchester to Liverpool by train

I would just buy the tickets on the day but have a look at http://www.tpexpress.co.uk/tickets/offers.asp.
There are two routes from Manchester to Liverpool - the quickest and with the newest trains is the route from Manchester Picadilly to Liverpool Lime Street.

Thanks very much, Britannia.

I'll check the website you mentioned. Have only looked at National Rail so far.

We're closer to Victoria station than Piccadilly, but I suppose we'll need to train it over to Piccadilly if there's nothing available at Victoria.

I could only find departures with connections nothing direct to Liverpool although the return is direct.

Interesting. I will research further.

Different trains to Liverpool depart from different stations in MCR - Piccadilly and Oxford Road.
www.thetrainline.com
Saver return fare is £12 - just walk-up it says. No discount for advance purchase.

Re: Manchester to Liverpool by train

If you are near Victoria you can get a tram to Picadilly - the tram stops underneath the main line station.

Excellent.

Thank you both very much.

Travel Tips for Manchester

Food Festival

by sandysmith

There's always something going on in Manchester and during our day visit we happily co-incided with a food festival. Stalls a plenty were set up in St Anne's Square in the centre with various local produce for sale -from ostrich meat, black puddings and olive oils (actually these were from Italy!). It was delicious trying several goodies but a favouite were these chutneys and jams. In particular a mango tango chutney (mango, sultanas and coconut) was too delicious and so we even bought some :-))

Local Foods

by steventilly

There is a good variety of "local" food that you can try - Lancashire Hot Pot (a lamb stew), Black Pudding (sausage of pigs blood, lard and barley) and my personal favourite The Eccles Cake. This is a flaky pastry case filled with sticky currants ;-)

The City of Manchester Stadium is a wonderful stadium with wide concourses and plenty of leg room, but it hasn't got the tradition or nostalgia that Maine Road had. To watch the match the only equipment you really need is a good strong voice to sing your club`s songs and encourage the team and your eyes to actually watch the game, some people do take a pair of binoculars if they sit far from the pitch.
Apart from the above the club s encourage you to buy their merchandise to enhance your matchday experience, you can buy virtually anything from hats and scarfs to the full blown replica kit, which generally is updated annually.

The Hidden Gem

by steventilly

St. Mary's Catholic Church is known as 'The Hidden Gem'. It's on Mulberry Street and is tucked away behind offices and shops. It's a lovely, tranquil place and around Christmas time the daytime carol concerts are a must.
