If you want really easy, you could jump on a train to the South Downs or coast. A nice day trip is to get the train to Hassocks and then jump on the South Downs Way to Eastbourne and then the train into London.Posted 4 years ago
Southern trains do an E ticket called the “All network downloader” where you can hop on and off trains anywhere on the network for one fee for the day.allyharpSubscriber
With enough planning in advance (c. 12 weeks) you could get a great weekend away in Scotland using the sleeper train. I’ve just done that (though with Monday & Friday off, so over 4 days).
I say advance planning as it’s normally flipping expensive, but if you’re around when they release the tickets (12 weeks in advance on the Friday morning) there are some available in a berth for £19 each way.
Failing that the Lakes is probably about the limit I’d travel for a weekend, and the Peaks would be even easier.Posted 4 years agoallyharpSubscriber

I take it you didn’t lose your bike at Waverly then?
