Hey me and 2 friends need to get from leicester to milton keynes next month to see the foo fighters however im just wondering if anybody can recommend any transport sites that are cheap because i've never really planned anything like this before.

I have looked on google but value another persons recommendation much more.

thanks HC

You have a problem that you do not have a direct line taking you from one station to another

Cheapest I could find was to travel from leicester to Nuneaton at £9.20 per adult return. Then from Nuneaton to Milton Keynes is £11.50 per adult return.

Total cost per adult £20.70 return. Book via thetrainline.co.uk dont forget if you book altogether you can get 1.5% cashback via quidco.

are they staying over, or just going for the day

As Loll1es says, buying a split ticket works best, otherwise anytime return (within 1 month is £30.20)

EDIT: Leicester - Brum New Street - MK (Return) = £15 + £12.50 per person if times suit. (could be less if you're flexible)

Dont you just hate it when the OP asks for help, then doesn't even reply to the thread when people have went out their way to find what they are requesting?

Actually mate, i've looked over the thread just havent replied as its been on my ipod touch and i dont like using that to reply so before you comment with something stupid i suggest you think before you post in the future.

Loll1es - thanks i've booked what you said, appreciate the help

tbh, its not just you - theres been numerous threads I (and others) have offered advise on yet the OP dont reply.

You could have at least posted "thanks all"

I get it all the time disco, I do sometimes wonder if OP's think I'm an automated response.

But its human nature on the web to not respond to what is essentially words on a screen. Please dont let it bother you, once in a while nice people like hotchocolate come along, and show some respect

Sorry but i dont always reply fast as i use my ipod to check over stuff and find typing long things out on it can be quite fiddly and frustrating.

Thanks for your input i appreciate all answers hence the reason i asked and because of your help i've booked it all and am set for then 2nd of july so thanks again
