Okay, now I can start planning the trip. London is easy (and rather cheap) to reach from Brussels, if anyone is driving from there and needs someone to split the gas costs, let me know!

Hey Hans,

If you don't manage to find someone to share a lift with, trains from London to Leeds can be as little as £20 return if you book long enough in advance - plenty of time to get sorted.

@Dimensions Generally the trainline.com. Cheap tickets are usually available from around 12 weeks before a date. The super cheap ones go really quickly but I just had a look now for some next month as test and the cheapest I could find we're about £14 each way (sometimes 2 singles are cheaper than a return).

Maybe £20 was a little optimistic but it's certainly possible, £30 should be no problem.

If you're feeling brave and money is tight then there is always the megabus.

waiting for the video to finish the encoding... I see quite some new tricks there. Including Around Britain.

I'm really curious, pity is still encoding. I'll keep hitting refresh.
