I'm looking at travel options for Crawley if I decide to swerve the long drive. I could be visiting family in N Lincs. on Friday so it would be useful to know if a coach is going. OS gives a phone number for after 6 pm but Facebook has no update for non members. Any info gratefully received.

Not surprised! Could be a £30 hotel room like the one in Carlisle then. Thanks Lukeo.

The train is a nightmare on Saturday too, with no trains running to Kings Cross. It's change at Sheffield and St. Pancras or Reading!!

It's not no trains, there is trains but you have to go to Sheffield then Reading then Gatwick, then Crawley and it takes between 6 and 7 hours, so to get there to give you time to have a couple of pre-match drinks you'd have to get the half 5 or half 6 train out of Grimsby.

Coming back too you can get the 6 O'clock train from Crawley but that's back via East Croydon, St.Pancras and Sheffield plus it's a bus replacement between Donny and Grimsby and you get back about 1am!!

I drove from Sheffield to Leyton Orient and back. Google says Crawley is only 15 min longer but seems further on the map. Family
concerns may blitz the whole idea yet. If I decide to drive I will post about potential passengers to keep me awake!

Shame there’s not more coaches seen as the trains are copulated.

Could be an idea to get the Megabus from Scunny.....it takes you to East Mids Parkway where you then get the train to St Pancras. Few stops on the underground and then get train to Crawley from Victoria.

Significantly further but it’s motorway then dual carriageway almost to the door. I’d have thought it was still more than 15 minutes extra though.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

It's a shame that Megabus doesn't serve the Grimsby/Cleethorpes area yet for some reason. Could be a cheap viable option of getting to certain games if it did.
