oxford to edingburg

Hi,

I have to make a last minute decision (Oxford to Edingburg) on the 17th June by finalizing the mode of transport. The rail ticket seems pretty high now, the other option is the bus at a lower cost (longer time). Can anyone share their experience on this bus, if it is uncomfortable I will have to opt for the train.

Thanks

Edinburgh, United...

Just done a dummy booking and the train comes in at £64.50 and takes 6.5hrs, the bus is £70 and takes nearly 11 hours!! I know which one I would chose!

Oh and it's EDINBURGH.

I took a bus Edinburgh to London when I was young. Now that I'm older I wouldn't even consider it. At least on trains you can get up and move around. And the seats are more comfortable.

Didn't you ask this yesterday, if so click on your name to find the earlier question

If you did not then you could fly from Oxford, Birmingham or Heathrow as all three have easy access from Oxford

Thanks much for the information. I arrive at Gatwick (14th) and take the train to Oxford (14th). Will overnight in Oxford, and have decided to then take the "train" to Edinburgh (17th).

It has been a last minute plan since I have made a last minute recovery to travel.

Thanks for the guidance.

Will keep reviewing my plans....

If you want cheap fares you should fix them sharpish. The longer you shilly shally the higher they will be.
