There's a quote in the wonderful film Kes, when a milkman says "third-class riding is better than first-class walking". So with that very much in mind, we attract your attention to taking hugely long coach journeys with Megabus.
Of course, it tend to be a bit cramped and people insist on eating sandwiches filled entirely with raw onions and extra-smelly tuna, but, it is better than walking from one city to the next; you are not Dick Whittington, after all. You can grab free seats with a 50p booking fee with Megabus.com. Free seats are available Mondays to Thursdays. Have a look here. If it isn't for you, it might be just the thing for younger members of the family.
