      I'm beginning to plan my trip. I've done a little research and have found a lot of very reasonable AIRBNB rooms and apartments. A lot of them are cheaper than just about every hotel I've priced out.

      If anyone is interested, if your flying into London I saw that you can take the Virgin Train up to Liverpool and they have multiple trains running at all times. A round trip ticket is about $120 U.S. Apparantly the Virgin Trains cost more than others but, they're nicer and faster. If anyone can verify this i would like to know for sure.

      Yeah it's probably the best way of getting to Liverpool, although with connections to and from the airport you land it, there is a flight from stansted - John Lennon Airport for around the same price, although I don't know how regular the flights are.

      Ok. Thanks .If you dont mind can I PM you about my trip planning? I found places to stay on AirBNB but i know nothing about the areas. I dont want to rent a room in some place that is like Trainspotting or in the middle of nowhere where I cant use a train or bus. Im also want to try and find someone who can hook me up with match tickets thats a legit seller or someone trustworthy.

      Thanks again for the info on the Virgin Trains.

      I use them enough to know this is your best way to get between Liverpool and London. About 2 hours 10 mins journey which is excellent and the option to get on the ale? No brainer.

      Just make sure you get the direct and not the one that changes at Crewe. And obviously, plan your journey for the off peak or you'll be paying a fortune

      A round trip ticket is about $120 U.S.

      If you book enough in advance you can get two single tickets for around half of that.

      London to Liverpool on train is a lot less of a ballache than from a London airport to London IMO.

      I planned on getting a late, off peak ticket. I figured on trying to set it up where I can fly in and land early in London. Around 10am. Spend the day in London checking out the Military Museum, grab a late lunch and then get up to Liverpool on one of the post rush hour trains. But of course well thought out vacation plans usually get fu**ed up about 20 min after you land, so who knows. I pray to god that my trip doesn't coincide with Trumps London visit. If it does Ill just say I'm a Canadian.

      If on a budget and you don't mind the longer travel, consider National Express or Megabus coaches. I've done the Liverpool - London route a few times when saving money and it can be ridiculously cheap, like 5 pounds. It takes about 6 hours, so that's not for everyone, of course. But I think the coaches are fairly comfortable and you could travel over the night if you want.

      Yep, well worth noting the advice of a fully fledged Gypo like Diego 😊

      London is now the murder capitol of the world so be careful you don't get shot, fly into London and get straight down to Liverpool would be safer and a lot more fun, we have a museum down here with some militaria.

      Stayed two nights at The Premier Inn, West Derby.
      Really nice hotel and very handy to get to the ground, here's the google maps link ;

      There was lots of Scandinavian Reds staying in the hotel, very friendly atmosphere and good banter with them all.
      Beefeater pub right next door too ;)
