Interesting article on train fares there. The main gripe I have with the UK is the annoying pricing of single versus return fares - it makes it really expensive to do anything other than a straight return trip, and if for instance you want to make the outward journey during peak times and the return during off-peak times, it's massively more expensive. It would also be interesting to know how many advance fares are available - there are routes I can never find reasonable advance fares for, and some where I don't think they even exist (eg Oxford -> Cambridge), probably because they go through London.

I have had the same experiences. And there never seem to be advance fares for peak times (the Friday evening Birmingham - Manchester line in particular).

That is a lovely take-down of UKIP :)

We were surprised when in Belgium last year regarding the difference in price from weekend fares to weekday fares. We travelled to Bruges on a Saturday for half the price of travelling to Ostend on a Monday (from Antwerp, both off peak). I wonder if we could have bought the Monday tickets a few days before and paid less.
