Today is the Day to Buy Your Train Tickets From London to Thought Bubble
In Britain, train tickets can be hella expensive, unless you know when to book them, how long to hold off, and know what's happening any time between 12 weeks and 6 weeks before you really really need them.
For example, buying a single ticket from London to Harrogate (Changing at Leeds), the new location for this year's Thought Bubble Comics Festival, arguably the best comic convention/festival in the UK, will normally cost you around £115 on the Friday or Saturday. Which is insane. You can fly from London Heathrow to Leeds Bradford Airport, and travel up from there, for under a hundred quid.
But today, advance train ticket sales for Thought Bubble weekend, covering Friday the 8th to Monday the 11th of November, from London to Harrogate, have dropped in price, from today. And so a ticket from London King's Cross to Harrogate costs £18 or £23 for the most popular slots. Same for the Sunday and Monday back. There is also greater £18 availability on the Thursday, too.
But these are running out. May I advise you that if you want to save yourself around £200 that you get there sharpish? Oh and while the East Midlands Trains website is a pig to use, it also doesn't charge the booking fees that other sites to. So that's another fiver in your pocket.
And if you are really brassic, there's also the coach. From London, that's ten to fifteen quid, six to seven hours. You pays your money, you takes your choice.
However you choose to book, don't wait though. Do it now. NOW.
And see you at the show.
