I'll catch a plane in John Lennon Airport at 6pm in a month's time and, being from Manchester, I would like to spend the morning and early afternoon roaming around the city. The thing is, I'll have my bag with me. Does anybody know if the coach or railway station have some kind of locker in which I could leave my things for a couple hours?

Lads, need some help.

Whats the cheapest/most efficient train from Manchester to Liverpool and vice-verse?

Also, can anyone recommend any decent hostels in the city for  night? Looking for a cheap bed, maybe 3 of us heading on the piss for the weekend.

You can get trains directly from the airport, or you can get them from the centre of Manchester at Picadilly, Victoria or Oxford Road. The ones from the centre are frequent and all take roughly the same times, unless you get on a transpennine express one which only takes about half an hour.

Hatters Hostel on Mount pleasant is alrite, by no means extravagant, but somewhere to put the head down after a few pints

or the Liverpool Inn Hotel also on Mount Pleasent is nice, stayed there the last time i was over, £75 between us for a triple room but very nice

Coming up to Anfield for the Norwich game on the 20th and me girlfriend is coming up too. Her hope was to go shopping while the game was on but stupidly I didn't even think about L1 being closed by 5 on Sunday's, leaving her with a few spare hours. Any decent suggestions on somewhere alternative to shop (doubt anywhere would be open?) or just a nice coffee shop she could spend a couple of hours, something nice and laid back ideally but all suggestions welcome...anything to get me out the doghouse!!

I would highly recommend the tour of Liverpools first dock to visitors and residents alike.
It's free, which is always a bonus  ;), and really interesting.
You meet up with two archaeologists in the Albert dock, and they take you on the tour.
You get to learn what the line of fountains, and all the markings on the pavement by Liverpool 1, are about.
Then you get to go underneath the porthole/viewing window, into the dock itself.
Been on it myself once; will deffo be going on it again  8)

Liverpools first dock tour.
