Skip the Train and Ride the Bus Instead

If you want to get around Britain cheaply – there’s another option that doesn’t get as much attention as Britain’s trains – the bus (our the coach as they say in Britain).

Britain has a vast intercity bus network and you can get around Britain very cheaply this way. For example you can get from London to Edinburgh for under £50 if you book far enough in advance (try finding train fares that cheap – you won’t!).

You may groan at the idea of spending a couple of days on a bus – but you probably won’t. Remember, Britain is a small country and you can between most major cities within a day or less. The bus trip from London to Edinburgh is just 9 hours for example.

So, if you can handle the swaying of the buses and want to see Britain’s motorways instead of its railways, give the bus a try.

We recommend looking at Megabus first:
