|Subject: Re: Getting from Liverpool to Chester, England|
You ask about getting to Chester from Liverpool by public transit. I can't tell you about that but you might consider some of these offerings!
One place on my list of to see's if I ever get to Liverpool is the Lady Lever Art Gallery at Port Sunlight. It has all those terribly romantic late Victorian artists - Rossetti, Millais, etc.! http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/ladylever/ It's free.
Port Sunlight itself looks interesting - founded by the industrialist William Lever in the Victorian era. It's a model village of houses and public buildings built for the workers by more than 30 architects. http://www.portsunlight.org.uk/
Here's a map of the port of Liverpool. The docks are just a quarter of a kilometre from buses. http://tinyurl.com/38opd
To find buses, try this site: http://220.127.116.11/NewJourney2.asp for Merseyside public transport journey planner. I put in Liverpool dock to Sunlight Park. It takes about 30 minutes for the journey.
Another highly regarded art gallery is the Walker with more Pre-Raphaelites and an enormous collection of decorative art. http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/walker/ Free - all national museums are.
Of course, there is always the Beatles! http://www.cavern-liverpool.co.uk/mmt/ For other suggestions, see: http://www.visitliverpool.com/displaypage.asp?page=6
You can also visit John Lennon and Paul McCartney's boyhood homes. They are owned by the National Trust. The 12 pound price includes minibus transit from the dock. http://tinyurl.com/39eb4
