How best to travel from London to Sunderland then on to St. Andrews

Jump to last reply

Our family of four will land at Heathrow Mar. 28 in a.m. from the U.S. We plan to attend the Manchester United vs. Sunderland match Mar. 30 at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland. After the match ends at approximately 15:35 p.m., we need to get to St. Andrews to stay two nights, then see the university on April 1st and get back to the U.S. as soon as possible afterwards. Have heard a recommendation to take the GNER up, sitting on right side, then fly back Edinburgh to London to home. Could someone tell me if that's a good idea? Also heard staying at Marriott Sunderland is good option for night before the match-could walk to stadium.

Nice full service place to stay St. Andrews less expensive than the Old Course hotel?

Deeply appreciate any advice. Thanks.
