I want to travel pref to Bridgewater but friends say they can collect me from either, it doesnt matter which London station I go from.It will be Wed to thefollowing Wed in May. How can find the cheapest fare ?
I want to travel out any time after 10.30am and return anytime after 2pm I am flexible but need to be back in London in time to catch the tube home.
Help appreciated. I am an OAP but I dont have a railcard.

Why not go on the National Express? It takes a bit longer but it might be cheaper. I went to Taunton (rtn) from Heathrow the other week (the coach started at Victoria) for £20.50 with a coachcard.

I would use the National Rail enquiries web-site, just put that in a google search and use the find fares section. I recently went to Winchester and found a cheap fare this way, and bought a Senior railcard on the day, saved 30% on an already cheap fare. You can probably do better by buying your ticket a month in advance and do use a Senior railcard, it will soon pay for itself.

Paddington - Bridgwater fares available from £11 each way.
taking sample dates out 9th may and back on the 16th -
train from paddington to taunton at 11h06, £19.00 advance single
train from paddington to taunton at 12h18, £11.50 advance single
Journey 2hr and 2hr30.
train from taunton to paddington at 14h23, £11.50 advance single.
journey 2hr5mn

OR
coach from victoria to bridgwater at 10h30, adv single £8. journey 3h30mn
coach from bridgwater to victoria at 15h50, adv single £8, journey 4h.
Taunton is a direct service from Paddington that costs, as mushroom25 says, £11.50.

Bridgwater is, as has also been said, £11. But that involves a change at - guess - Taunton.

So you get on the same train from Paddington, get off at the same place, then get on another train for a further ten minutes and it's 50p cheaper. There seems to be precious little logic to this.

All prices supplied in this case by The Trainline.
