    Train Journey with toddler

    Train Journey with toddler 22nd Nov 12 at 5:21 PM
    I'm travelling to my parents house at Christmas with my (just turned) 2 year old, and we're taking the train.

    I have a few Qs:

    1. Which is the best site to book the ticket with? (i.e. less or no booking fees)

    2. Two year olds travel for free, but is it possible to book a seat for them, and if yes, how do I do this?? He's HUGE for his age, so my legs would get really numb if he had to sit on my knee for almost 3 hours.

    3. Any tips for entertaining a 2 year old on a train, and how to be organised, especially when we have to change at Sheffield?? I'm not overly strong, and I'm just wondering how I'm going to manage toddler, bags and pushchair!

    (It's just a 1 way trip, we'll be going back by car!)
