Its about 60-70 miles, I reckon 1.5 hours by train or car, by bus I am you would probably have to go via Manchester. I.e get the Megabus to Manchester then get the National Express to Southport it will take for ever.

Southport is very cold at this time of year, although Lord Street is history on legs.

Cool - thanks Mr Trade - not really going for a 'fun' visit though - just checked train line - i have to go via Manc - 2.5 hrs! Quite a long time - will have to leave early.

Thats a very long time since you can get to from Manchester to London in two hours by train, and thats much further than Leeds to Southport.

I guess its still half away across the country though if you look at it from east to west point of view.

Yep - that's what it says though - do you know if the trainline always shows the quickest route?

It usualy does, and it wouldn't surprise me that there is no direct route because Southport is not the biggest town in the world. I had to get to Halifax by train once and that took nearly two hours despiting it being only 45 miles away.

I'm sure there'll be a quicker way to go, going via Halifax, Bradford, Preston or somewhere like that.
