Manchester to Nottingham via train?

Need some train info, please.We will be visiting Manchester in November and taking a side trip for a concert in Nottingham. Do we need to book the train tickets ahead of time or can we get the tickets the day we travel?. We will be going to Nottingham on a Wednesday, staying overnite and returning to Manchester on Thursday. What kind of train tickets are the best buy for for an overnite trip to Nottingham?

Just put your itinerary into www.nationalrail.co.uk

Normally it's cheaper to purchase in advance - on this route you'll save about £10 per person compared to buying on the day

I would definitely get your tickets in advance as that service is always really busy no matter what time of the day and they only ever put two or three carriages on!

National Rail enquiries website is your best bet as they will give you the price of a return ticket and the price of two singles if you click on the appropriate button!

Thanks for the quick response. I take it that a return ticket is a round trip ticket?

Yes a return is a round trip.
