Train Travel Question for London & Holyhead

Jump to last reply

I have a question regarding the train between London and Holyhead. From Holyhead, we’ll be taking a ferry to Dublin, and then returning to London via Holyhead.

I know we don’t need to buy our train tickets in advance (as in “several weeks in advance”), but should we? As I do some research, I’m forming the assumption, correctly or not, that tickets purchased in advance are cheaper.

All being equal, I’d rather buy the tickets on the day of travel, or possibly a day or two before while in London. Just a personal preference. But if I'm going to pay a lot more to satisfy that personal preference, then I'd have to reconsider.

Our days of travel are fixed, with no flexibility. The day of travel from London to Holyhead would be a Thursday morning (8:00 or 9:00), returning from Holyhead to London on a Monday (around noon departure). We have very limited flexibility on travel times. This may or not matter, but I thought it should be something to point out.

By the way, I’ve looked into the rail passes versus point-to-point fares, and the pass will not be for us.

Many thanks for your assistance
