Using the "Family and Friends Railcard", Liverpool, Beatles Tours

Jump to last reply

Traveling with husband and 15 year old. We are spending a few days in London and would like to train up to Liverpool for the day to do a Beatles tour. We will only be in London for 3 full days (2 full days, since one will be spent in Liverpool)..

I read about the Family and Friend Railcard - would this be a good idea? How is it used?
Since we cannot purchase the card online from the USA, and have to wait until we get there, we cannot get the advanced ticket fares.

Or do we just buy our tickets at the station on that day, or the day before? That seems like it would be much more costly. Any other ideas are much appreciated.

ALSO - Can you recommend a great Beatles tour? I know that the Fab Four taxi tour, the Casbah Coffee Club and the Pool of Life Beatles Day Tour are highly recommended on Trip Advisor. Any word from you Fodorites?

Thanks!
