Catch the train to a summer of fun with Merseyrail for as little as £1.95

You’re absolutely spoiled for choice when it comes to summer fun across Merseyside, from LIMF to Kidsfest and mile upon mile of coastline and Merseyrail can get you there for less than £2. Watch your Merseyrail What’s On guide above

The kids are about to break up and the great summer get away begins as we flock to our regions parks, beaches and open air venues to soak up the rays and make some memories with our friends and family. July is packed with outdoor events from city centre parades, to phenomenal festivals and plenty of options to eat and drink al fresco plus the summer-long and ever evolving Pier Head Village.

As summer begins to heat up, it’s a breeze to catch the train to wherever you’re going across the region.  Merseyrail return tickets start from just £1.95 so ditch the sweltering traffic jams and arrive in style.

Here’s our top July events you can get to with Merseyrail….

LIMF 2017

LIMF is back to take over Sefton Park with a stellar line up of family entertainment and live music from Becky Hill, M.O, Jessie Reyez, She Drew The Gun, The Vryll Society, Gorgon City, Corinne Bailey Rae, Naughty Boy and many many more. Merseyrail can get you to nearest station, St Michaels from the city centre in just a matter of minutes. On Saturday new music platform, Merseyrail Sound Station will be pitching up their pop-up stage at St Michaels Station with live acts performing throughout the afternoon.

Expect sets from Joseph Mott, a rising electronica artist, Psychedelic punk purveyors, 50ft Warrior and Kallo. Unfortunately as a result of strike action, there wont be any trains running on the Hunts Cross line on Sunday 23rd July. Passengers are advised to check www. before they travel.

Pier Head Village

With a wide range of attractions and new features for 2017, including the new Sound City Bar, Liverpool Art Fair’s purpose built art gallery and the chalet style hut Artisan Market, Pier Head Village is the go-to summer destination for culture, food, drink and entertainment in the city. Just a leisurely 5 minute walk from Moorfields and James Street stations, this summer long attraction has something for everyone.

Liverpool ONE

Why not take a stroll from James Street or Central station and see what’s new at Liverpool One this summer? Whether you’re looking for family fun, retail therapy or things to do in Liverpool on a date or with your friends, Liverpool ONE has over 170 shops, bars and restaurants to explore and a summer filled with exclusive offers too. With return train fare for just £1.95 you can afford a summer splurge in the shops!

Summer in Liverpool

For most of us the summer is filled with play dates, days at the beach, visiting family and impromptu nights out. You can save yourself a pretty penny on travel and swerve the parking fees by travelling by train throughout the summer. Pack your picnic (who’s making the pineapple hedgehog?) your Bluetooth speaker and plan a fab day out across the region. Take a wander to the brand new Baltic Market at Cains Brewery, explore Liverpool Loves on Derby Square or treat the little ones to a fun-filled day at Kidsfest, Stanley Park with a return tickets from as little as £1.95.
