I appreciate your advice on this...
We'll be visiting family in March and after spending time in Rochester, we'll be visiting hubby's mum in Wrexham, I think hubby's dad will drive us to London then we can get a train there to Chester where we'll be picked up.
So I went to the First Great Western web site just to get an idea of what to expect for prices.
83 pounds for one round trip ticket. That's about 135 dollars per person. Does that sound about right? Just for fun I went to Eurostar's website to see how much a round trip ticket would be to go to Paris and it showed about 100 dollars. I told my hubby it would be cheaper to take me to Paris instead of visiting his mum... *grin*... (j/k. I love his mum!!)
Does this price sound about right for a 2 1/2 hour train ride?
I also noticed right above where it said "return" there was a box that said "single" and had a range of 15 to 39 pounds? I guess this is just going one way? Can you get two one way tickets for 15 pounds each? I dunno, I found this web site confusing. I'm not very familiar with trains.
BTW, do you have to buy the tickets in advance? Can you just go to the station and buy them or are they always full?
Anybody have advice about renting a car? Might that be an option? :)
Thank you in advance!!
