Train travel in England?
I'm attending university in Liverpool soon. I plan to be travelling by train or bus to Cambridge relatively often. I was just wondering;
What would an average price for train/bus travel from Liverpool to Cambridge
Is it worth paying more for train rather than bus
What service should I use? Any good travel sites for cheap fares?
Thanks in advance
