London to Nottingham

Hi all.

I am travelling from London to Nottingham for the first day of the cricket. July 10th and leaving after the game July 14th.

I was wondering.

Best website to book a train ticket? is train the best option? How much does a train ticket cost?

The game starts at 10 so would you reccomend that we head down the night before or are there early trains available?

Thanks for your help in advance

Book on www.eastmidlandstrains.co.uk

Journey takes approx 2.5 hours plus journey time to St Pancras and from Nottingham Station to Trent Bridge. If your budget and schedule allows I would consider going up the night before - train tickets are likely to be cheaper and it will make for a more relaxed (and later) start to the day. However, it's a perfectly "do-ble" proposition to do it on the actual morning.

The train line timetable dosent run up to July yet...but it looks like you will be paying in the region of £60 for selected off-peak returns.

And the journey will take approx 2 hours.

Usually, the earlier in advance you book your ticket, the cheaper it will be. And I agree with GingerChimp...look at the option of arriving the night before and enjoying our city the evening before the match!

The cheapest walk on return is £57.50 - superoffpeak which has long blackout periods for peak hours. You can buy it on the day and don't need to book

However advance singles - either from www.eastmidlandstrains.co.uk/tickets-offers/ or

http://uk.megabus.com/default.aspx (includes trains, don't worry)

should give you a saving on that price. 10-12 weeks ahead for East Midland and about 6 weeks ahead for megatrain

Don't use thetrainline - they charge fees

I'm roughly around Euston square area. So many options thanks for that. We might head up the night before and go from there. Any suggestions of a great hotel then?
