Basically, I've got an assesment centre down there - midweek - at the beginning of June, and was wondering the best/most cost effective way to get there (as I'm not a driver) from Edinburgh.

Flight to London then train out, or train all the way?

I'm sure some on here will live in/have travelled to that neck of the woods a lot more than me - I'm assuming the former option is better?? :confused: :dunno:

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

IIRC there is a direct train from Gatwick to Oxford.

(or was it Heathrow???)

Few of my mates go to Uni in London - They travel back up via megabus i think. Its through the night though but once one of them got up for like 5. Might not be the most suitable but can't complain with them prices!

Trains probably best, WAV - WOL with VT then WOL - OXF I think its XC takes about 5.5 hrs.
