Thanks for the suggestions – yes, will link to the ticket sites. Cost is more difficult as it depends on booking window. great for more info on this. Unfortunately it's beyond our capacity/influence to get train operators to change the way they sell tickets!

It's the most popular holiday destination for us Brits, and perfectly accessible by train or coach. Make the journey part of the holiday and stay grounded on your way to Spain!
