A train service runs between Manchester Airport and Liverpool Lime Street station. There is also a direct coach service which takes about one hour.

London airports

There are regular direct trains from London Euston to Liverpool Lime Street that take less than two and half hours.

From London Gatwick, simply get the train to London Victoria (approximately 30 minutes) and then take the tube to London Euston (eg the Victoria line tube takes 6 minutes).

From Heathrow airport, an option is to get the Heathrow Express to Paddington (taking 20 minutes, running every 15 minutes) and then the tube from Paddington to London Euston (eg Elizabeth line to Tottenham Court Road then Northern line to Euston, taking 15 minutes in total). Alternatively, take the Elizabeth line tube directly from Heathrow airport to Tottenham Court Road instead (takes 33 minutes) for a slightly longer journey, but it is slightly cheaper and requiring only one change.
