Hi !
In our UK trip we are planning to make Liverpool our base ( know some folks there ! ) . Considering we have 5 days there to roam about , which places are do-able and affordable ? We were thinking of a 2 day driving holiday to Lake District , and day trips to Manchester, Blackpool , York etc. Whats your take on this plan ? Considering we wuld like to just limit the “castle” bit to one or two , what are the things that one can do in this part of England ? And for sure , if you feel that instead of doing day trips , making halts in these cities is preferred , pl let us know. Thanks in advance for the help !

Cheers

Thanks ! Whats there to do in York ? Any idea on how far is it from Liverpool – by train / bus ( and which is the more affordable route ? )

Someone else also recommended the place to me – will try and squeeze this in !

Regards

Go see a Manchester United match if you can, even if you’re not a soccer fan, it’s an experience!!

well, I went with my family and it was one of those package tours and that worked out fairly expensive, but if you register as a member on the website you can buy them too, here is a list of the ticket prices: http://www.manutd.com/default.sps?pagegid={38F4DC65-5522-4F2A-B07F-3D150263B4C5}

You can still go on a stadium and a museum tour if you don’t want to go to a match!Smile
