    That'll be from Victoria. Usually cheaper from Blackfriars or London Bridge, ~£18, and the trains are not as knackered as they used to be.
    Without wanting to seem rude John, do you have a freedom pass? If so, book your travel from East Croydon, £15.80rtn (thameslink) or specific trains currently available at £5e/w.

    Southern have reinstated the advance tickets! You can get the £5.00 advance ones from and to Victoria but it means traveling after 09:30am. It's £3.30 with a railcard.

    You need to book now as the tickets increase in price rapidly before disappearing. Remember you have to travel on the designated train.

    The fiver gets discounted with snr railcard but not with my network railcard (presumably on the basis of minimum fares on weekdays).

    Got me thinking about the southern daysave though and, yes, it seems they are finally available online again after only being so from 'the other end' for a few years.
    These are great if travelling in a group, £39 for 4 adults hop-on, hop-off, anywhere on southern network after 10am weekdays, anytime weekends. I followed the link to tickets and it actually came to £38 total.

    As the good lady has not been to Brighton for many a year we have booked a hotel near the sea front for a bit of a stay before the Friday meet up..

    I'm all booked now as the advance fares are available now. I got £3.30 to Brighton from Victoria (Southern) and £8 back (Thameslink) with my old gits railcard.

    Anyone returning via London on the Saturday needs to know there's a replacement bus service between Brighton and Three Bridges that weekend.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
