To get a good start, I will be spending the night of the 30th September in Accrington.

I shall get up early, visit the stadium at Accrington Stanley and then get the first train at 6:17 to Leeds.

From Leeds, I’m booked on the 10:05 to London Kings Cross, arriving at 12:30.  I have decided I bought the wrong ticket for this leg, so I’ve started a saga to get an earlier ticket, and not pay the earth for it.

I then rush to Waterloo and get the first train to Aldershot, hopefully visiting the ground and getting back to London about 16:00.

This ticket has just cost me the princely sum of £6.20 return.  But then I’ve got a Senior Railcard and a Freedom Pass.  The latter means I actually have to get a ticket from the zone 6 Boundary. 

This should just about give me time to get to Arsenal and to Euston to catch the 17:03 to Birmingham for Witton, which is close to Aston Villa. Hopefully, I should get a train back to London after the visit to Aston Villa. If not, it’ll have to be a coach.

Incidentally, the last leg to Villa and back is costing just £14.50 return.

Hopefully, I’ll end up home in bed at a reasonable time.

See what actualy happened here.
