Anyone know if there's any reasonable train prices for the Barnet match.  Just looked from Cleethorpes to Kings Cross leaving on Friday and returning on Sunday and it's about £70 -80 each way.  Was thinking about treating the wife to a weekend in London...... and going to the match on the tube from there.

£30 for a two together railcard would be a start. Gets you a third off each ticket.

Cheapest I can see on the Friday is the 18:34 which is available for £27 still and coming back  (if you don't mind leaving late) then the 20.35 out of KX is available at the same price. Earlier train back on the Sunday are about £40 though.

Yes it is half-term, at least in Leeds. Reckon that'll be why the limited cheap tickets (the 14 quid ones) will have been snapped up a while ago.

If you book via the East Coast website it's slightly cheaper as you get an extra discount as you are using their trains.

The 18:34 out of Gy on the Friday is £26.45 each and the 19:34 is even cheaper at £20.40 each but that doesn't get you to London until gone 11pm.

Great!  Thanks Les.
For years I've always driven but it tires me out a bit these days and have started to use the train but half the time end up paying too much.
I appreciate your and others help and advice.  Hope we take a decent crowd there and get a win.
