Found 5th Jul 2013
F.C.C offer a 'super off peak' day return on any train sat, sun and B.H mon, for £10 return from London to Brighton, a group of four travel for a total cost of £20 as this is combined with groupsave (4 travel for price of 2). All accompanied children go for just £2 return, railcard holders pay £6.60 return. trains leave from London Blackfriars and take around an hour, perfect for a day by the sea... less than the average tube fare in town..

Woo hoo, perfect timing for Brighton Pride. Sadly I will be up in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival or I would have gone.

Until when is their promo?

been this price for the last two years now... not very well advertised though...

Could you leave the train in Gatwick for the airport?

and how many goats / virgins do you have to sacrifice to FIND the elusive £10 return???

Urghhh First capital trains are so horrible, not a patch on Southern trains and that's not necessarily saying much :P

No as the ticket barrier wouldn't open - you'd have to buy a ticket that ends in Gatwick from the nearest station to get through it.

Southern often do advanced tickets to Brighton for around £4 anyway though.

Yes! Pride here I come

The ticket barrier might not open, and the staff there may not know it, but you're still allowed to leave at Gatwick. This specific ticket allows you to break your journey at any intermediate station. You could also return from Gatwick to London on this ticket. Bear in mind it's only a "Day" return though.

None!
Its a walk on fare... Just make sure you select the Super Off Peak option at the ticket machine or from the ticket office.

I live North of London and FCC have a similar deal... £20 for a Super Off Peak return from all stations North of London to Brighton. In my instance that means Bedford and equals a real bargain!

They also offer London from all stations North of the capital on the Thameslink line for £14 return or £20 with a One Day Travelcard at Weekends and Bank Hold...

You can also travel on East Midlands Trains intercity service with these tickets on trains that stop at Bedford, Luton and Luton Airport Parkway.

I live in Wellingborough which is one stop north of Bedford and only served by East Midlands Trains and their walk on One Day Travelcard to London is over £40 and Brighton is over £70!

So usually split my ticket in two, buying a return Wellingborough to Bedford and the necessary ticket from Bedford to London/Brighton... Saves me a minimum of £12 on walk on fares.

Just make sure the train stops at Bedford! Which nearly all do from Wellingborough.

So passengers travelling North of Bedford on East Midlands Trains should consider splitting their tickets too if your train stops at Bedford. You do not need to get off the train, as all UK rail ticket office, must sell you the ticket you want. But you regularly have to request the cheapest option and tell them the ticketing option you want.

great film

Have a few trips to Brighton planned - thanks

Thanks, we going in August just for a day out as its easy for us to get to on one train from St Albans and its £16 from there.

With group save is £8 each, so better make sure we have a number coming which divides by 4

Southern advance fares are £4.95 one way with a railcard. Their trains are much nicer too and you can go from Victoria or London Bridge. And you don't have to conform to the super off peak restrictions...

Think it's gonna get busy this weekend in Brighton!

There are NO restrictions on this ticket, it can be bought on the day at the station, and is valid on ANY fcc train... If you book an advance, you have to use specific trains...
