Cheap fares to Southport for Children and Seniors

January 23, 2010

Northern Rail have some special offers running from now until the 6th March with discounted child and senior fares from Walkden to Southport.

Over 55’s can purchase off-peak returns for just £5 (compared to the usual Adult Return fare of £9.20) on Mondays to Fridays after 0930.

On Saturday’s it’s the turn of the kids with a £2 return fare valid all day (usual price £4.60).

Please note there are no trains on Sundays from Walkden until May – despite this offer being advertised for Saturday and Sunday travel !

Southport station is in the heart of the town’s shopping district and just a few minutes walk from the seashore, so why not get the train from your local station for a bracing day out at the seaside !

  1. Remember that over 60s can travel off-peak to Southport all year round for just £6.50 (or £4.30 with a Senior Railcard – a saving even on the offer price) by purchasing a return from Appley Bridge to Southport and using their bus pass to travel free off-peak to Appley Bridge (which is the last station before you leave Greater Manchester).
