I'm travelling across the UK (Gloucestershire to Kent) next weekend for my friends housewarming next weekend. |
A train will take about 3 hours, with 3 changes and cost £30. (I'm not overly keen on trains but don't mind them)
Or I can drive, which will take about 2 and a half hours and will cost me about £40.
A big consideration is that I may be tired/hungover on the Sunday I come back, but that I can stay as long or as short as I need.
As long as no one minds shuttling me to and from the train station, I'd always take the train. I'm actually travelling across the Uk this weekend to a friend's housewarming (Surrey to Cheshire) and I know I'll quite enjoy the opportunity to nap on the way back.
Train is cheaper and has the advantage of being safe no matter how hung over I am. Seems the better option to me.
Of course for me personally it wouldn't be a choice at all since I can't legally drive. But hypothetically.
I would take the train, but I love trains and can't drive =p
Since I've just paid £208 for me and my boyfriend to get from London to Glasgow and back - that sounds pretty reasonable priced to me! I hate having to change trains too.
Trains are a better option if you're in danger of being drunk or hungover though.
The price of trains in the UK is an absolute fucking joke.
At least you have trains. The nearest train station is over an hour away from me.
If the train system here (and public transportation system in general) were actually decent and didn't just go piddly assed little ways and that's it and then stop service at inconvenient times, I'd probably never drive. I hate driving.
i would drive. i get the train everyday to get to work and i like to avoid it when i'm not going to work.
i eat a big breakfast before leaving, but that depends on how bad your hangovers are - once I have something to eat i'm normally fine and able to drive.
