    London Norwich cheap travel 3rd Feb 18 at 1:53 PM
    Hi, just wondered if anyone had any advice on travel options to Norwich?

    I know Megabus go frequently and they're probably the cheapest option but I was wondering if there are train deals. From National Rail I see it's possible to get £10 e/w if the tickets is booked in advance but then you're tied to exact times. I seem to remember East Coast deals being available but can't seem to find any currently. Thx.

    Splitting the ticket at Maningtree might save something, otherwise it may well be booked trains only.

    I think the cheapest fare without being tied to specific trains is £55 off peak return.

    The "best fare finder" includes the London-Norwich route and will help you find the best cheap deals for specific times.

    Megabus (and National Express) will also most likely tie you to a particular service - and they aren't anything like as frequent as the train (and take up to an hour+ longer each way)

    Yup, £55 for the off peak return. If you're coming back the same day you can buy a Super Off-peak day return London-Manningtree plus Off-peak day return Manningtree-Norwich (i.e. splitting at Manningtree), for £51.50

    There's an offer on greateranglia website for £20 day return Nor - Liv St.

    Book by 16 feb, travel up to 14 April.

    If you want to go & back on different days, maybe buy 2 of these offers
    Quote was right and saw into the future.
