I know nothing about travelling by train, I never do it, so I could really use some help. :)
I'm travelling from Blackpool or Poulton and could stretch to Preston, and heading for London. Dates of travel would be leaving early-ish on 20th November and heading back sometime on the 23rd, possibly early evening although a non-peak time would suffice.
Any discounts, etc, that I should know about? I tried a couple of those train comparison sites in October for trains a couple of days later then for amonth in advance and the prices weren't any different. They also all seemed to be around the same price, so I think it's mainly Virgin trains over on the west coast lines? The price was £120 for two adults.
There are two adults going. One of us may be able to get a young person's railcard if it helps but wouldn't use it much...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
