I'm coming to Liverpool in September, and I couldn't be more thrilled! For the first part of my journey, I will be in London, so I need to get from London to Liverpool. I have booked tickets to see the Lennon and McCartney homes with the National Trust, and it said very plainly on their website that they do not wait for late participants for the tour. So I really must be there on time!
My question - is it better to take Megabus from London to Liverpool or National Express rail? I saw online tickets for 10 GBP on Megabus, and online specials on National Rail for 14 GBP from London to Liverpool. Since it's not too much difference, price-wise, I just want to use whichever will be easier for a foreigner and most reliable.
Also, I'm an American, and I'm not totally sure yet if the Megabus website will let me use it as a non-UK customer -- if anyone knows for sure, please feel free to chime in!
