I have to go down to Bristle in a couple of weeks. I thought I’d look at doing the journey by train because why not? By car it would be a 5h45m round trip and would cost £30 in petrol. The cheapest train journey I can find is £181 for a return journey which would also take 5h45m. Hmm.
After some outstanding Internet dancing by my good lady wife her indoors, the price of a return ticket has been reduced to £97.89. Of course, this is still more expensive than driving down, but it’s a journey I’m going to take.
