    London to East Grinstead return via Tunbridge Wells

    As far as I am aware there are no public toilets in Forest Row. Before the pandemic when I have visited the village I have used the facilities in one of the cafe or pubs in which I have taken refreshment. Since the pandemic many of the toilets have been closed so I do not know the latest update...

    London to East Grinstead return via Tunbridge Wells

    I live local to the area and I have walked the whole route of the Forest Way many times. I am also probably one of the few readers who travelled over the route by train...! Warning - Be aware of the cyclists who seem to think it is their own race track. I can also recommend places to eat on...

    Through fares to heritage railways

    At Eridge someone once went to the National Rail self-service ticket machine and purchased a return to Tunbridge Wells and promptly paid the approx £25 fare which was routed via Oxted, East Croydon, Redhill, Tonbridge to Tunbridge Wells. He was rather upset that the Spa Valley Railway staff...

There are between 0800-0900 around 30 trains per hour in the morning peak. A frequent service of trains on the up main slow (platform 10) plus the...

    Victoria - Brighton - Lewes - Victoria

    Whilst I am not an expert in fares routing but I am positive that buying a return ticket to Lewes it would valid via Brighton. During engineering works when the Wivelsfield (Keymer Jn) - Lewes line is blocked then trains are diverted via Brighton and similarly when the Brighton Main line is...
