what different methods of travel can i use (london to york)

by sam2008

hi

apart from the National Express East Coast train from London kings cross, what other easy and cheap methods can I use to get to York from London for example can i get a bus, or an express coach if so where in London would I be able to get it from. how long would it take.

if any one can help it would be very much appreciated

you could take a National Express coach

there are several each day take between 5 and 6 hours and costs about £23

train will be quicker but probably much more expensive

the main pick up is probably Victoria coach park but there may be other pick ups to choose from

www.nationalexpress.com will give you coach times and fares: you should should book your seat ahead to be sure of a seat, either online or at an agent/coach.

www.nationalrail.co.uk will give you train times and fares. There is no need to book ahead, although fares are cheaper this way.

National Express is the train service, not the coach.

Coaches do not usually pick up elsewhere: they run from point-to-point. Local buses pick up at several points on their routes. 'Buses' are for short-distance travel in the UK, 'coaches' are for long-distance.

Coaches are usually cheaper than trains, but the journeys are slower and vulnerable to traffic delays.

Meant to say 'National Express is the coach service, not the train' !!!

Must use the 'preview' button in future......... :-)

Leics - National Express now run the trains too from London to York - they took over the franchise from GNER - I wonder if they will align coach and train fares!

No! I got on one of their trains by accident and had to pay an extra £71!

Anyway:

Megabus is cheap. They can get you to London or Wakefield where I live, then a quick train or regional bus.

Have a great time!

Aha.....must have subliminally remembered about the National Express train and just didn't believe myself! :-)

www.nationalexpress.com book in advance cheaper if you buy as singles train is the best way to travel.

Sam never signed on again after Janusry.

Such good information for some guy with no patience.

BTW, I just booked 2 singles to LOndon, you are right - cheaper.

Unfortunately Sam does not have your good qualities. I think a few newbies think this is a paid site that responds instantly.

Seems to be an increasing number of them as well. :-(

Travel Tips for York

The Smables!

by Deus_ultima

The Shambles!
No, that is not distortion due to a wide angle that your seeing..it's actually what the street looks like!!

Said to be one of the oldest streets in england a slow walk trhought it is a must for anyone that has interests in medieval culture.

There is a nice riverside...

by blos

There is a nice riverside walk/cycle lane along the Ouse near Fulford it goes along from Fulford towards the city centre crossing the Ouse via the Millenium Bridge. It's a nice way to while away a day when the sun is shining:) Playing soccer by the Millenium bridge with some random dog. Good player sharp teeth though :)

The Clergy & The Law

by Goner

Our second day in York we hurried back to York Minster to see what we had missed at this amazing cathedral and low and behold, it was closed to the public because of the local barristers and clergymen were taking their yearly walk, in full regalia - powdered wigs and regal robes - down the street to York Minster for special services. This is a 400-year-old tradition. Now isn't that special. Well we thought so and took too many pictures. No one seemed to know why this march was made each year. We were disappointed that we couldn't see more of this awesome cathedral.

Dick Turpin's grave

by Sjalen

England's most famous highwayman might have been from Essex and have had relations to Derby but he spent so much time in York he actually died here. His grave can be found if you continue down to the cemetary behind the Castle Museum and Walmgate. I remember how I watched the TV series about him as a nine-year-old in Sweden so it was of course a must to visit the grave once I came to York :) In fact, I used to draw him and his horse on my bedroom wall...

Northallerton

by Britannia2

Just 30 minutes north of York is North Yorkshires county town - Northallerton. This is a very under visited town possibly at the expense of Thirsk which is more widely known. However Northallerton is well worth a visit and market day is a particularly good day to go. My Nothallerton page has full details of the town.
On the A19 north of York or take a Middlesborough bound Transpennine Express train - every hour from York.
