If you’ve had enough of the winter, if the rain is bringing you down and the cold is making you blue, think ahead to the summer and all that it brings.  Sunshine, longer days, glorious evenings, barbecues, picnics, camping and of course, festivals.  A British summertime staple.

Festival goers notoriously hog the roads with miles of cars all heading for the same destination at the same time.  Why not avoid all the stress and hop on the train? Not only will you whistle past all the poor people stuck in hot cars but by booking up to twelve weeks in advance, you could save a considerable amount of money on the fare.  Use our best fare finder widget to get cheap train tickets, and while you’re at it check out the information we’ve put on here about split ticketing (LINK), it could save you even more money.
