|Eurostar trains for Paris and Brussels await departure at|
London St Pancras International
I am booking the English holiday myself: hotels booked in Shanklin, Portsmouth and Chichester and train tickets booked so far as I can, but for some reason Advance tickets for Saturdays this summer are not (yet?) available between London Waterloo and Shanklin, so there is a bit of a gap in the travel arrangements! Yes, I can pay for an off-peak single but the Standard Class fare then costs a lot more than the Advance First Class tickets I was hoping to buy. It is something to do with the engineering work taking place at Waterloo in August and the timetable not having been settled yet, and the best SouthWest Trains can say is to keep looking every couple of days ...
