No such train company as Brit Rail

virgineastcoast are the train operating company and you can book weekday tickets up to 24 weeks in advance, currently an advance ticket can be had from £25

Not sure why this is in the Croydon forum. For the avoidance of doubt, the train will depart from Kings Cross.

You can actually book a ticket from Croydon to Edinburgh (I presume you are staying in Croydon,.which is why you have posted in that forum). However do dummy bookings for both Croydon-Edinburgh and London King's Cross-Edinburgh as it might work out cheaper just to pay separately for Croydon-King's Cross.

I have just checked if you select the right time you can get a ticket for as low as £42.50 single but return can be up to £142.00 If you aren't afraid of flying it may be cheaper and faster especially if you can go from Gatwick.

Actually further to wirewipers point if you are travelling on a weekday in December you can book now Kings Cross to Edinburgh from £25 one way or £58 in 1st class (Virgin's early bird tickets). You can't book that far selecting Croydon to Edinburgh so probably better to split the ticketing and just pay the £6.20 for the train from Croydon to St. Pancras (which is right next door to Kings cross)
