Hi we are a family of 5 looking to get to Southampton from liverpool. Any ideas on cheapest/ easiest way if doing this?
Depends when you want to travel.
Look on www.nationalrail.co.uk
Or you can get a National Express coach down there for £24 if you book in advance. But the jounrey takes about 9 hours!
If you're a family with children then start off by buying a Family Railcard which will give you a third off most rail fares.
The easiest train route is the one which doesn't go through London - change at either Birmingham or Stafford depending on the day of the week (it looks like it's Birmingham Monday to Saturday, Stafford on Sundays)
