    Too early for any rail company offers yet, while the government is still forcing them to do everything they can to deter people actually travelling, however Travelodge have just unleashed "a million rooms" from £29. This runs through to 31 Dec so there might even be some pubs open by then!

    I have just nabbed a weekend in York for £60 (not primarily beer-related).
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Does anyone know whether the lack of train schedules/options, even in next 3 weeks (rather than 90-day searches) is due to lack of availability for Covid spacing, or rail companies not having websites properly working?
    I want to get to Nottingham/Beeston 14-16 Aug (TL accom offer!) but the return, especially, is proving very difficult... thanks, j

    ps. there do also seem to be very few direct trains, and then very slow, but no options to book the quicker change lines via Grantham...

    Thanks ob, I only use that to check times, not make bookings, but it had options that southern or thetrainline did not. Back via Newark for £21 each, gambling on getting 3 via megatrain for outbound, heaven knows when those will become available... cheers, j

    Default LNER ticket sale

    There's a sale on at LNER for travel on their trains between 6 September and 15 October - tickets must be booked before 1 September. (I got tickets from Sheffield to London and back for £19.25, but if your journey is solely on LNER trains there are some fares even cheaper. Book split tickets, e.g. I did Sheffield to Doncaster, which is TPE or Northern, then Doncaster to Kings Cross on LNER.)

    That's a trip up to Berwick on Tweed for £40 secured

    Might try Keighley as well if I can find somewhere to stay that isn't extortionate...

    It is, but the website first crashed and then timed out yesterday when I was trying to use it.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    I had the same issue, but was able to book tickets on the app with no problems.
