Travel to Liverpool South Parkway train station from Liverpool city center

Liverpool, located in the northwest of England, is a city with a huge amount of history. The home of the Beatles, a former hub of the Atlantic slave trade, and a place that is home to two massive soccer (football) clubs: Everton and Liverpool FC, it is a great, affordable place to visit. The Liverpool South Parkway train station is located south of the city center but is one of the city's main stations, the others being Liverpool Lime Street (the world's oldest still-operating major train station), Liverpool Central, Liverpool James Street, and Moorfields. Transport links between the stations are good with regular, quick trains and buses going to South Parkway. Passengers can also get a taxi. Trains from the Liverpool South Parkway station run to Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Norwich, and Southport.

What is the best way to get to the train station from the city center

Trains, run by Transport for Wales, East Midland Rail, West Midlands Trains and Northern, all go from Liverpool Lime Street station (right in the city center) out to South Parkway, running between every 20 minutes and every half an hour. The last train of the day departs at around 11:40 p.m. with the first train of the day leaving at around 6:00 a.m. Five bus routes run from Liverpool One Bus Station - right in the center of town - out to South Parkway: the 80A, 82, 86, 80 and 500 lines, with a bus departing at least once every ten minutes. Buses start departing at around 5:00 a.m., with the last bus leaving for South Parkway at around midnight. None of these services run through the night during the week, although the 86A - a special night service - does run on the weekends.
