Rail station to London - on the road from Brighton

by dldkag

Hello,

My brother and his family will be driving from Brighton to London, and he wants to leave his car at a rail station outside the city and take a train into central London. Does anyone have any station suggestions that would be easy to get to on the trip up from Brighton? Also, as he has small children he was hoping for a station that would provide direct transport into the city (to avoid transferring trains mid-trip). Thanks for your help.

There must be a good reason why he wants to drive from Brighton to London - Brighton has a good rail service direct to London.

He doesn't want to leave his car in Brighton because upon leaving London he'll be driving back to Germany, and Brighton is not on the way.

Ah, right o, knew there must be a reason!!

Possibly Reigate or Crawley or Croydon. Is he taking the tunnel route, or if not, what is his port of exit?

He would be taking the tunnel route. Does that make any of the stations an obvious choice?

Not really. However, Maidstone has good links, so does Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells.

Good question !
There are of course many different answers to the question. Will the car be parked up for the day or will it be parked overnight or longer? The nearer to London you get, then the potentially more expensive is the parking charge. For returning to the car it would also be a good idea to avoid the busy commuter type trains that can get packed during the 'rush hours'. So the options are plenty but ....

A useful map showing the rail network in the South East of England may provide some additional pointers.

Richmond or Kingston on Thames might be an option, although it is taking you further west. We have travelled the Waterloo-Richmond line during rush hour on many occasions and while busy it is never absolutely crushed and standing room only - there are a lot of coaches on the trains; the ones nearer the station end of the train i.e. at the back tend to get more crowded because they take on the later-comers. I would say that any line with good and frequent connections in and out of London is going to be a commuter line.

Thanks to all for the feedback you've provided so far.

He'll likely be looking to catch a train into London late on a Friday morning (between 10 and 11), leaving the vehicle overnight, then returning to the car park late in the afternoon on Saturday (the next day). Since this timing wouldn't likely have them traveling during rush hour, would that make a difference?

Not really. As in all roads lead to Rome, so do all rail lines......

Travel Tips for London

visit camden town... if you...

by suelove76

visit camden town... if you like people watching, come here,, there are a lot of interesting people and tons of variety... there are lots of great vintage shops and venders selling cool jewelry, art, and souveniers... i have spent way too much money in camden, but keep coming back for more...

Remember to drive on the left side!

by J.I.M

Unlike our other European friends, in the UK and Ireland we drive on the left, so be careful when in London! The roads are so busy you'll have to be careful when driving on them or when crossing them.
Of course if you're from Ireland or Australia or another left-hand country you'll have no problem :D

St Margrets Church

by kris-t

St Margrets Church - the church of the House of commons sinse 1614 .

Visitors are welcome to this beautiful church. The present building consecrated in 1523 is the third of the site.

Winows commemorate Caxton and Milton who worshipped here, and Raleigh, who is buried in front the altar, under the glorious window made for King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon in 1520.

After about nine hundred years of service as a parish church for the people of Westminster St Margaret's was plased under the care of the Dean and Chapter of Westminster by Parliament in 1973. It is stiil in regular use for worship and for recitals of music.

Pearly kings and queens

by stephenshephard

This is a tradition started in 1875 by an orphan named Henry Croft, who got the idea of sewing pearl buttons all over his suit to draw attention to his charity fundraising efforts. He was so much in demand that he had to recruit helpers and these became the first 28 pearly families, one for each borough of London.

You may well see some today collecting for charity in various tourist areas, but the best place is at their annual Harvest Festival in October. This was usually at the church of St Martin's-in-the-Field but in 2003 it was at St Paul's in Covent Garden. Check the website for details of future events.

Be prepared.

Always pack clothes you can layer. Temperatures can and do drop substantially when the sun sets. Several thin layers are warmer than one thick one.

Rain is frequent all year round. It may be heavy, it may be light, it may last all day or it may be a brief shower. So bring an umbrella and waterproof outerwear.

Sandals are just miserable in the rain (it's never warm rain). London is hard on the feet, so bring comfortable walking shoes. Save heels for the evenings.

Dress so that you can add or remove layers through the day. Your body will tell you when to add or remove: it is different for everyone (see photo).

Unless people are going to work, or out for the evening (and often then as well) jeans are the norm, for all ages.

So are trainers (sports shoes). They are comfortable and good in the rain.

Key point to remember: no-one in London (or the UK) actually cares what you look like. Really.
