Luckily can get it from a TOC site for a mere 4.20 anytime single!
That might be useful if you had a TOC specific Advance that only got you to Picc and were going to the university or around there. I've certainly bought a non-zero number of that ticket when I was at uni.
That is bizarre! If you really want to go by train you'd get the Northern Line to Moorfields (one stop) and then Wirral Line to Lime Street (one stop). But the walk between the two lines at Moorfields takes almost as long as the walk on the surface between Central and Lime Street.Someone else pointed out a while ago asking for Liverpool Central to Lime St (on a one way loop, trains travel in the opposite direction) which gives walk Central to Lime St., catch a train back to Central then walk, again, Central to Lime St.
Or maybe get yourself a seven day All Lines Rover (ALR) - £540, or £356.40 with a railcard (https://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/pr20780b0a0400020167ed620a7e504e.aspx). Save almost £100 every time you make a Penzance-Wick return journey!Today a return standard class return from Penzance - Wick with railcard seems to be possible for about £450. With split ticketing probably less. Quite a lot of changes and night travel, but doable. I suspect it's been done and could be a rail enthusiasts challenge.
I've bought that ticket (albeit for 75p with railcard discount). I was visiting the area and wanted. It was cheaper to have a bus day ticket (which I'd used all the way from Coventry) and that single fare than to buy a multimodal day ticket.Stourbridge Junction to Stourbridge Town for £1.10 single
That is the Lancashire Day RangerOne which I assumed would be quite cheap is Blackpool North to Blackpool South via Kirkham and Wesham and was quoted £25.20 single
As JonathanH has just pointed out, isn't that the price of a Lancashire Day Ranger?One which I assumed would be quite cheap is Blackpool North to Blackpool South via Kirkham and Wesham and was quoted £25.20 single
Isn't Kirkham and Wesham in a different ticketing group than Blackpool North?As JonathanH has just pointed out, isn't that the price of a Lancashire Day Ranger?
Seen that quite a few times, when no point to point fare is available, day ranger type product pricing is instead suggested.
The second is not even the length of Charing Cross station. It's almost certainly as quick to walk from the entrance of one tube station to the other as it would be to walk downstairs, take the train and walk back up again.Two on London Underground..
I understand that a number of foreign visitors buy a £4.50 single to go on the Piccadilly Line from Covent Garden to Leicester Square a distance of less than quarter of a mile or 5 minutes walk.
Embankment to Charing Cross is also 5 minutes walk along Villiers Street.
You can use that via Oxford and Banbury, between which points you could use CrossCountry and thus first class. However it wouldn't be the only place where there are first class fares that aren't usable on any services with first class.I've bought that ticket (albeit for 75p with railcard discount).

As for the main topic of the thread, Bicester Village to Bicester North - it costs £18.70 for a single which sends you via Princes Risborough or Haddenham and Thame Parkway. Bizarrely, a first class fare is also available, despite Chiltern's lack of first class.
