Slightly left-field post only applicable to very few of you but hey….
For those travelling to BETT on the train, it is well worth looking into Group Save tickets (http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/promotions/pr354fdc0a0400020101fea1769fbf60/details.html) Basically you need 1 adult and then three other people (adults or children) and then you just pay for two full price adult tickets. So four adults would travel for the price of two.
Then with this group, four additional children will travel for just £1 each.
Take our trip to BETT.
Group 1: Me and my wife, two children, plus four additional children at £1 each. That would normally be £185.50 but with Groupsave it comes down to £78. Bargain.
It’s well worth looking into if you are taking children anywhere and don’t have enough to claim big group discounts.
