I am thinking of attending the London zones 1-4 challenge on the 11th of april and was wondering how cheaply I could get a day return from Todmorden to London (I'm not fussy about advances). I would need to be at Waterloo by 1045 at the latest and leave St Pancras at around 1715. How early would I have to leave and how late would I arrive back? I don't want to pay too much so if anyone could help I'd appreciate it. :)

Sorry I didn't mean a day return ticket. I mean I would be heading down there in the morning and going back north in the evening. I just want cheap advances basically.

www.eastcoast.co.uk currently gives child Advance fares of £18.35 for the 0622 departure from Todmorden, arriving King's Cross at 1001, and £10.75 for the 2005 departure from King's Cross, arriving Todmorden at 2335.

Edit: Also see above.

Can you get to Leeds earlier than 0634?

For a bit of variety on the way back you could do:

London Euston - Rochdale advance currently £13.25 on the 2000 (direct to Piccadilly) or 2007 (also change at Stafford)
+£1.80 Rochdale - Todmorden
+ cost of tram across Manchester

Either gets back 2357.

First class on the 1920 or 2000 from Euston to Rochdale via Piccadilly is £25.50.

The 1920 gets you back to Tod at 23.04.

Just in case the OP isn't aware, you may also go from Piccadilly to Victoria via Salford Crescent if you want to avoid this cost, although not sure if there are trains at the right time to enable this.

Alternatively you can walk between Piccadilly and Victoria in about 15 minutes.

For the outward journey leaving at 06:22, Todmorden - Peterborough = £9.05, Peterborough - London Kings Cross = £7.70, total = £16.75 (booked through www.eastcoast.co.uk).
Only a small saving over the Todmorden - London price but all the same, it's there.
