Bus Travel in Skelmersdale

More about the hidden gem of 'Skem'

Hidden within wooded valleys and open green spaces lies Skelmersdale, known locally as 'Skem'. The heart of Skelmersdale is the Concourse Shopping Centre packed with 100+ stores, cafes and family-friendly eateries. Want some fresh air? Get messy at combat paintball, head to Beacon Park Golf Centre or enjoy the woodlands, meadows and play area of Tawd Valley Park. This park is also home to a meditation community founded by the Maharishi who introduced the Beatles to the practice.

Our buses connect Skelmersdale to Liverpool, Southport, Wigan and even more destinations. Why not leave the car at home and let someone else do the driving instead?
