Yeah, the ones I just found were £28.50 (single) - all the cheap tickets might have been bought. They get more expensive the closer it gets to the departure time.

Tried this one? http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/
London victoria - Brighton 11:15 departure 24 pounds (edit; for a one way trip)

Last time I took the bus from Amsterdam to London for 60 euro and the train tickets from london to brighton and back costed me about the same.

I also got results for a 10 pound ticket but that was from London Bridge LBG and I don't know where that is in London?

Perhaps try a different computer? My card is sometimes refused if I use my laptop (windos7), but if I do the same thing on my home computer (windows XP) it is accepted.

On thetrainline.com you can get a return from Victoria - Brighton for £30.70. Perhaps it would work out cheaper to get the tube there than to get a ticket from Kings Cross - Brighton?

National Express is definitely cheaper, £9.50 each way, but it takes 2 hours 10 minutes on the way down and 4 hours 35 mins with 2 changes on the way back!

Get a single separate tube from Kings Cross to Victoria, and search for trains Vic to Brighton.

You can go from London Bridge as well. I think Brighton trains are more frequent from Vic.

And avoid the Gatwick express trains, they are really expensive.

Hope helps. Really jealous of you lot, I really wanna go. **bug sulks over mothers day**

i got 0 changes in my search, but then again i don't know what time she has to catch her train in London. and yeah, it takes longer, but the times given seem to be overestimates - i almost always get to London from Bristol 15+ minutes earlier than it says on my ticket.

Thanks guys! I had to make my bf use his credit card, I don't know what the problem is with mine... That's the second time recently I haven't been able to pay with it online. I'm definitely not over the limit!

Can you get the Alpro macchiato flavour over there? 'cause I have 2 cartons if anyone wants any. I also bought the new whippable cream! But it says to keep it refrigerated. Anyone want to take a chance on that? Oh and I got two large sized speculooses, the regular size was sold out.

I bought 2 new books for my Kindle to read on the train. I'm so glad I have the Kindle, because this is really helping to maximise space. Imagine how many fewer cupcakes I could get if I had to take 2 actual books with me!

I managed to get everyone's stuff that they asked for. We can work out exchanges when we meet up.

I need to pack the rest of my stuff! I'm leaving the house before 6am!

Did we actually decide where to meet? Or just meet at 2? It's a fairly big venue! Since some folks are already on their way and may not have magic knowledge machines, out front is probably best?

Yep! Good plan, or perhaps just inside the ground floor foyer? It's pretty big & apparently it's gonna rain.

Whoops.

We decided to go last minute (i.e. at 11.40am, 150 miles away), so did a crepe job of meeting up with folk. Saw a few people we know randomly though.

Driving took just over 2 hours from the Midlands, which is 1 hour quicker than the fastest train (4 hours than the fastest coach) and half the price (based on 2 people in the car - the same price if we took the coach). Gotta love public transport!

The festival was nice and it's always good to meetup with ppk'ers.
(sure worth the effort, pain and cold in my case)

Saturday the weather wasn't great
Image

No-muh cheese stand on saturday (didn't feel like taking pics all the time)
Image

After the veg-fest we went to a cafe for couple of drinks, afterwards to a sushi place (forgot the nameof it)
I had the vegan duck
Image

Terriyaki mushroom sushi and natto-beans and spring onions roll
Image

Ms.Cupcake stand on Sunday, the picture doesn't do justice on how good the cupcakes looked or were
Image

I'm not good at remembering names, but this is pecan something cookie
Image

"what's it's name cookie"
Image

"cream and jello" cookie (I think)

Those are (or look like) whoopie pies. And the pecan cookie looks fabulous. Looks like a good time!
