If there's 3 of you going you might as well get a taxi - it'll be about £20 - £22 inc tip (unless you're a bunch of miserable fuckers) to most of the city centre (inc. the airport toll).

The 500 bus is a good option too - about 3 quid each, I think. Maybe less. Stops in Liverpool One. Takes about 35 mins to the taxi's 20.

The 82A bus will go to/from the airport as well but it stops at every single stop and goes through Speke, Garston and Wavertree before going to Liverpool One bus station.

Outside the arrivals door buses to the right. Taxis to the left. A guy working for the airport will point you to the next available taxi.
flying into manchester. no direct flights to liverpool from where i am so it’ll be bus/train from there.

staying at some hostel that’s 5 mins walk from lime street train station so i imagine its fairly central.

Lime Street is an odd area - it has a mixture of chain pubs (Wetherspoons et al) , McDonald's, KFC, etc. and a lot of new student accommodation. Avoid the chain pubs.

It's close enough to Dale St. though which has The Ship and Mitre, The Dead Craft Brewing Co., The Lion Tavern and Mowgli right at the top on the Mersey end of the street.

Liverpool is a very compact, stroll-friendly city so you'll never be too far from anything.

Enjoy the game. YNWA.

Nah, I'm from Cork but I've been visiting Liverpool 3 or 4 times a year for a decade or more.

Gigs & beer festivals mainly.

Great option for getting around and then back to the airport.

Check out the Pig and Whistle in Covent Garden (if it's still open).

Great beer (avoid the Guinness) and a plate of scouse if you're that way inclined.
