Northern Rail £5 savings for Southport Flower Show

August 15, 2010

The annual Southport Flower Show opens this Thursday 19th and runs for 4 days until Sunday 22nd, and Northern Rail have a money-saving offer for discounted entry.

Tickets for the festival cost £21 (£18 concessions) on the day, or £16 in advance (plus a possible booking fee, depending where you buy them).

However, Northern Rail are  offering special “add-on” rail fares from Walkden that include admission to the show and the bus transfer  from Southport Train Station to the Showground.

At £27.85 the Adult fare from Walkden is £2.35 cheaper than buying an off-peak return (£9.20) and pay-on-the-day festival admission (£21). Cheaper prices are available for railcard holders (£24.60) and accompanied  children (£7.10).

For full details of the offer see the Northern Rail Southport Flower Show special offer.

The cheapest option for full fare payers is to buy your flower show tickets in advance from a ticket agent with no booking fee and travel off-peak (ie after 0930) to Southport, but if you decide to travel on the day the Northern Rail offer will save you money.

Direct trains run from Walkden to Southport at 09.04, 10.04, 11.04, 12.04  etc until 16.04
