    Cheap rail tickets needed from Norwich to London

    I am planning on going to London Zoo end of this month / beginning of October. I would prefer to go on a coach trip but I can't find any local to me at all, so, the train it is!

    However, I am getting prices for a open return from Norwich to London of around £70 each which is way too expensive and really ridiculous!

    Does anyone know of a way to get cheap rail tickets to London? I know that they keep advertising things on the radio for cheap days out to London but I obviously can't find any!!

    Thanks

    national express have an offer £6 each way-have only looked at 2nd oct so far
    nxea.trainsfares.co.uk/Buy…rue

    and i think it offers 2 for 1 london zoo tickets too.

    Advanced purchase fares on the train are just £6.00 each way from Norwich. That's £12 return - slightly better than your fare! I have used this several times with success. Have a look at : thetrainline.com

    Ok, what am I doing wrong!

    I am putting in Norwich to London, 29th September 2008, outwards around 7am, returning around 6pm. I am getting prices for a standard open return for two people at £156!

    How are you lot getting £6 each way?

    untick open return, n just go for normal return, open return are more expensive, have a look on the national express train website , you should get some cheap fares if u book in advance

    I am getting £12 single fares not £6 as mentioned above.

    Also, can someone tell me, is Euston a train station or a tube station? The zoo is not far from Euston so would prefer to travel direct.

    euston is a railway station im sure with links to the tube. Have you not been to london before? if not you will see all stations are connected by the tube.

    To get the £6 tickets, go for a time outside of "commuter time" when the trains are too crowded to be offered a deal price. I just tried 10.00 a.m. - Oct 2nd = £6.00. Stay in London for another hour (have a meal with the money you saved) and return at 7.00 p.m.

    For your date of 29th Sept I can only get £12 each way (a late return gives you the £6 fare). On the trainline.com site look towards the bottom of the screen when prices are first mentioned and click the link stating "2 singles could be cheaper". This now shows you the real deal. Select an outward and a return - if you travel at popular times you pay more. HTH.
