Read More About Train Travel in the UK Plan a Trip with The National Rail Enquiries Journey Planner UK Travel Tip The cheapest train fares are those designated "Advance" - how far in advance depends upon the journey as most rail companies offer advance fares on a first come first served basis. Advance tickets are usually sold as one-way or "single" tickets. Whether or not you buy advance tickets, always compare the "single" ticket price to the round trip or "return" price as it is often cheaper to buy two single tickets rather than one round trip ticket. It can still be confusing to try to match up cheap tickets with rail times and travel dates. Simplify your life and let the National Rail Enquiries computer do it for you. Use their Cheapest Fare Finder search tool. If you can be flexible about times and dates that's even better. Tick the boxes marked "All Day" in the extreme right of the tool to get the absolute bottom dollar available fare.

The journey takes 6 1/2 to 8 hours and costs start at about £20 each way . Bus services can be booked online.

These can only be purchased on line and they are usually posted on the website a month to a few weeks before the trip. It is worth checking the website to see if "funfare" tickets are available for your chosen journey. Use the National Express Online Fare Finder to find the cheapest tickets.
