Looking for a cheap and interesting way to get from Preston (25th May) to London Terminals (Euston, Paddington, Marleybone, or Kings Cross would be best) I'm not in favour of the high priced journey on a Friday and the return the next day would preferably be from Kings Langley or Watford Junction in the evening. (I can get the Met from Watford or use buses)
Can someone help?

Update: Staying in a Premier Inn accross from Kenton station. So now I need the best value for money Preston-Kenton.

if you can get the 0616 to birmingham on the friday then thats £9
Then the 0855 from Moor St is only £20

You could then return via EMT to Sheffield @ £17
Then theres some tickets available @ £9.50 from Sheffield to Preston.

£55. maybe not the cheapest but would get yourself on a few different classes of trains that way.

No railcard discounts applied as you never said - roughly £37 if you had one.

Don't know about prices, so this route is purely of aesthetic interest...

Out: Preston - Halifax - Kings Cross (Grand Central)
Return: Watford - Rickmansworth - Aylesbury - Princes Risborough - Moor St - Galton Bridge - Wolves - Preston.

How about using London Midlands service from Crewe. Think there fares are pretty cheap. They do advertise Liverpool to London with good low fares too. Maybe take train from Preston to Liverpool via Burscough. Then London Midland Liverpool to Birmingham service, change at Crewe, or maybe Stafford. Even stay on to New Street, had some cheap tickets from there to Euston, you could also look at Chiltern Line From Moor Street/Snow Hill to Marylebone.

Don't forget that if the OP is happy to use LM then the current half-price sale might be handy too.

Consider using Chiltern on the way back from London on the Saturday and you could pick up a single for 25p :) using this offer here.

I was going to say that but I wouldve though t they wouldve been taken by now given the daily limit on availability but I guess not.

So yeah go the other way then back via chiltern
