Sorry for the stupid question, but I need some help. My family and I have a great air fare to London Gatwick for the end of March. We are going to be heading to Manchester immediately to watch a soccer (football) match, and then will spend a couple of days somewhere up North before heading back down to London for several days.
Here's the question --- Do we journey by train to Manchester or book a flight ? If it's considerably cheaper to take a train, we'll go that route, but if it's close I'd be inclined to fly.
Any help you might be able to provide on the pros and cons of each option would be appreciated.
