    Finding Cheap Train Tickets? After A Return Ticket From BB1 to LE2

    I need to find a cheap train ticket but never booked a train ticket in my life, Im after a return ticket from BB1 (Blackburn) to LE2 (Leicester).

    Departing date preferred from Blackburn is either 26th/27th January
    Return date departing from Leicester back to Blackburn: 30th January

    Dont care about times, just need the times departing 10am or after and arriving before 11pm.

    Any mention of websites would be great, just need some pointers of what websites to use to find the cheapest tickets possible.

    Thanks.

    if you book singles and travel in the afternoon - you can get tickets for £17 each way - a return is £50 or £50.40 - cheapest
    but I don't know if any of these do tickets by e-mail - or by post

    Alternatively, avoid the national call rate by calling 01709 768621 (taken from saynoto0870) :thumbsup:

    leaving leicester at 16.16 Friday is £17.50

    I had to go forward in time - then back - and it produced a cheap ticket (glitch??)
