Cheapest way from Manchester to Liverpool

Hi,

I´m travelling to Manchester in January and I´m planning a day trip to Liverpool.

I´ve checked out the Nationalexpress Website and the fare is 9 pounds which is consider quite expensive (travelling on a tight budget...). Is there a cheaper to get to Liverpool?

Thx, Eva

Yes - £8.50 cheap day return on the train. The only restriction is that your outward journey must start after 0930. No advance booking needed.

The fare is the current one - it may have increased a little in January

Any train company that runs between the two cities - it doesn't matter.

You can buy it on the day - there's little point in buying it on the internet. If your plans change you have lost your money.

I caught the bus lest Wednesday, it was £5.90 return. I suggest you look more carefully, you are looking for a day return or a "fun" return, depending on what times you select it can be as little as £2
