Anyone come across any cheap train deals yet for Burnley?
Looks like it will be a 3pm kick off so keen to get something booked up.

Only just gone on sale last few days with Virgin West Coast.

Cheapest you can do it for is 55 return. Via Manchester Piccadilly on the way, via Preston the way back. Several different combinations available.

Virgin East Coast aren't selling yet. Possibility to do it via Leeds. Depends on pricing.

Looking this up, even with a 16-25 railcard looks pretty expensive. The absolute cheapest (with a railcard) is 36.30... if you want to hang around in Burnley for two hours after the game, change trains twice on the way back and take almost 4 hours on the outbound journey, 3 and a half on the return.

60 looks to be the cheapest realistic option (again, with a railcard).

Done that journey home a couple of times from burnley and whilst the view is lively the train itself is dire :(

Going up via Manchester isn't too bad so that's what I'll be doing. On the way home I just shelled out for the 18:15 train to preston. Saves hassle and gets me home quick.

What train times?

With a railcard:

KGX 09:03 - 11:25 Leeds
Leeds 12:08 - 13:11 Burnley Manchester Road
16.50 standard, 38.95 first

Burnley Manchester Road 18:12 - 19:22 Leeds
Leeds 20:05 - 22:25 KGX
9.90 standard, 38.95 first

cpfcfly
26-08-2016, 08:54 AM
There's one more alternative. On the way up it's possible to travel with Grand Central to Halifax on the 10:48 out of King's Cross and change there with a 20 minute interchange, arriving into Burnley at 14:11. That's 14 roughly with a railcard (21 without) one way and shorter journey time.

No return option with Grand Central.

What train company ?.

Virgin Trains East Coast King's Cross - Leeds
Northern Rail Leeds - Burnley Manchester Road

Book all the way through with Virgin Trains East Coast, using the "via" option put Leeds and it routes you onto that.

The alternative for the way up which I'll be doing is the 10:48 Grand Central King's Cross to Halifax and change there for Burnley. Have to split the tickets for that.

If you split it in to lon-brum and brum-burn you can save quite a lot (even more so if using London Midland/Chiltern), but it adds on to the travel time considerably

A great day out - helped by travelling to and from Leeds so there was the bonus of the train journey across the snow covered hills.

Train tickets looking not too bad still for this. Here are the cheapest options:

10:48 London King's Cross - Halifax 13:20, 13.40.
(Grand Central)

Halifax - Burnley Manchester Road return, 13:40 Halifax - Burnley 14:11/17:12 Burnley - Halifax 18:06, 9.10.
(Northern)

18:07 Halifax - London King's Cross 21:25, change at Leeds, 14.50.
(Northern, Virgin Trains East)

Total = 37.

For those who are wondering, you don't change trains on the way back at Halifax, which is why there's a 1 minute change time. The train goes all the way from Burnley - Leeds via Halifax.

Comparison from Euston is 48.50 (Virgin, Northern).

Easily one of my favourite away days, one for the hardcore who were there in the lower championship days. Proper long distance traveled, not even served by a main line station, loads of decent pubs, cricket club serving cheap beer behind a proper old school away end... If you zone out for a little bit you can almost forget about all the glamour and Premier League bullshit and place yourself back in the championship. (Dont get me wrong, i wouldnt swap the success we've had for anything but it's still nice to reminisce about where we came from)

It seems the club are determined to use this phasing policy even for games like this where there's no need for it. For Southampton, Sunderland and Everton they allowed general sale 4 per person once the phases had run their course so we can be hopeful that they'll do the same for this game.

Just to confirm the details...

Adults - 30
Seniors (65+) - 20
Young Adults (18-21) - 20
Under 18s - 15

Phase 1 Tuesday 27th September from 10am
Season Ticket holders & paid Members with 2000+ Loyalty Points

Phase 2 Wednesday 28th September from 10am
Season Ticket holders

Phase 3 Thursday 29th September from 10am
Paid Members

Phase 4 Monday 3rd October from 10am
Season Ticket holders and paid Members can book one additional ticket

Coach Travel 26 departing at 7am.

There is some argument around consistency i.e we know what the policy will be. It just seems pointless to have four categories for a game that won't sell out anyway. You will have dads driving up there who will have to hold back to book with the kids.

ah, the parish points system strikes again. did the club not learn that for the last 3 away games the system failed miserably so in a bid to save themselves put on general sale and buy on door, which was better than nothing but already too late after many had made alternative plans due to booking trains/hotels etc, also a nightmare for those in groups with different points and familys.
