Couple of questions about how and where to buy train /advance tickets for these "legs" of my trip;
1) Gatwick airport to Knaresborough (arriving on a Wed - May 23rd- 9am) - then staying in Knares. for 6 days.
2) Knaresborough back to London (May 29th) -- but not definite on which area I am staying yet -- (I thought Kings Cross may be easiest for my few days in London to sightsee -- cheapest area)- --- But are there other stations that the same rail line may arrive -- and maybe would be worthwhile to stay near that instead of kings X (for sightseeing?) I don't want to spend all day on trains in London trying to see stuff!
Also wondering if staying somewhere else would make it easier when I leave london -- for the 3rd leg:
3) London to Salisbury on Sat June 2nd. I need to get to Salisbury on that day by 1 pm at the latest -- meeting up with tour for Stonehenge. - do I have to change trains again if I stay near kings cross? What rail line goes to this area?
4) Salisbury to Gatwick - should be only one option I assume -- but any cautions or tips?
So confusing !! Any feedback appreciated
