Getting Around Liverpool

Taking a trip to Liverpool can be a great vacation for both people in the UK and those coming from anywhere in the world. There are many different modes of transportation that you can take to get into Liverpool, and a few of the best options are listed below.

By Plane
Liverpool does have one airport in the city, the Liverpool John Lennon Airport. If you are coming from the UK or many countries in Europe there is a good chance that you can get a flight directly into the Liverpool John Lennon Airport. However, if you are coming from a different continent you will need to switch planes to get into this airport. Luckily, it is served by a few of Europe's discounted airlines, such as RyanAir and EasyJet, so you will be able to find a cheap flight from many major cities in Europe and switch over there. Once you arrive at the airport you can take either a taxi or a bus to get into the city center.

Another option may be to fly into the nearby Manchester Airport. Manchester has service to many international locations, so it is possible to fly into Manchester and then take a bus, taxi, or train into Liverpool. The train is usually the best option, as they have a direct train right from the Manchester airport into the center of Liverpool. This may be easier for those coming from abroad.

By Train
The main train station in Liverpool is the Liverpool Lime Street station, and you can get to it from all different cities throughout the United Kingdom. There is easy service to major cities such as London, Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham, and Birmingham.

By Bus
There are two bus companies that have service into Liverpool. Buses are run by either National Express or Megabus. National Express has service to several cities in the United Kingdom, while Megabus offers daily service to and from London.

By Car
It is possible to drive to Liverpool, but it may not be the most convenient option. Liverpool can get crowded and there are relatively few Park and Rides, so you may want to plan your transportation accordingly.
