Train fares from London to York on Christmas Eve

by bruhns

The train fares from London to York on Christmas Eve seem very expensive. We are two Aussies on tour then visiting relatives for Christmas. Have to travel on Christmas Eve, any suggestions.

unfortunatley, the trains are only run by GNER, so they have no competition, try looking on there website over the next few weeks, as some cheap deals will be coming up, if u are only going 1 way, and know which train u want to be on a superadvance ticket will be best, u will probably have to get a return(just dont use the return portion) but it will be cheaper to buy this sort of ticket, as on a friday a single ricket will be nearly £100

hope this helps
try the following websites

I use the BritRail point-to-point tickets a lot. They can only be bought ourside of the UK and are usually a great bargain. If you're going to take the train more often, a pass might be better for you.

Failing that (Christmas Eve being v busy, and services later on winding down for Christmas Day anyway) you could investigate going by coach. is the site. A lot cheaper, but takes quite a lot longer. Might be worth it, depending on timings etc. Whatever transport you use, make sure you book well ahead.....see my first comment about Christmas Eve travel!

Brrr...yes. Have done London-York by coach quite a lot when I lived in York (incidentally working for the railways as did my York husband) and it does seem to take forever but it's certainly cheap.

Travel Tips for York

York Pass

by Dabs

I didn't find that the York Pass was a good value for me but if you are interested in the York Dungeon or a sightseeing tour or are staying in the area for multiple days, you might look into getting one. As with most passes there is a much better value in getting a multiple day pass

Red Tower

by sandysmith

Red tower marks the temination of the city walls - and once upon a time marked the beginning of an impassable swamp area.
The tower suffered from the battle ravages of the siege of 1644 and has undergone several restorations. The Tower was also formerly known as Brimstone House after a manufactory carried out within its walls.

English Pubs


For many locals the english pubs are their second home and a perfect place for conversation. English Pubs usually don't have a waiter service. You have to go to the bar to buy your drinks and to pay immediately after your order. The beers for sale are either on draught (on tap), in bottles or cans. Famous types of british beers are: Ale, Mild, Bitter and Stout.

Look for the little man.......

by leics

And while you are visiting the peaceful and evocative Holy Trinity Church off Goodramgate, see if you can find this man. He's on one of the pillars near the door, quite low down, and sadly worn away by time and (I suspect) centuries of childish hands. I think, originally, he had arms too.

I'd never noticed him before, and I think he's really interesting. Sculptures like this are common in Medieval churches and cathedrals in the UK, of course, but I've never seen one placed so low down on a pillar. I wonder why? Perhaps the original floor was lower.....that would make sense.

Thirsk - home of James Herriott

by Sjalen

Thirsk is a lovely small town north of York. It has some old coaching inns by the square where you can sit and write your travelog and sup a pint. Most famous locally for being the home of Alf Wright who is better known as James Herriot, the vet who wrote stories about his life in the Yorkshire countryside which were then filmed for TV in the surrounding Dales ('All Creatures Great and Small'). Unfortunately Mr Wright/Herriot passed away 1995 but you can visit his house where the surgery was in Kirkgate. He got married in the church in the picture. You can drive to Thirsk in half an hour or take the train but then you face a brisk walk as the train station is outside the town centre, literally in a field with a couple of houses.
