Best way to go from London to Liverpool?

Hello,

We will be taking the ferry from Calais to Dover and will travel around UK mostly between London and Liverpool and Cheshire, there will be 4 of us. What would be the best way to get around?? Does Liverpool have a good bus system?? We don't want to tackle driving there. .

Thanks for any help,

Hi Pam! I can't speak for the bus system within Liverpool, because I didn't spend time there specifically.. However, last September I took the National Express bus from London to Liverpool. I bought the bus ticket online before I left (www.nationalexpress.com) for $2!! (I just printed out an e-ticket after purchase) The bus station was just around the corner from Victoria Station downtown London, and I was careful to choose a route that was without stops, roughly a 3 or 4 hour drive. It was a very good experience for me, and super affordable, but I am unaware as to the other alternatives for this commute. Hope that helps!
