Customer Travel Tip: If you need cheap accommodation definitely do the hostels, they are clean and fine for visit. Buy a Key Card or travel card for buses, its cheaper. Off peak to London 11.70 return is cheapest so careful what you pick as a ticket. There are pound shops all around, great to buy all your travel stuff, even food, snacks, drinks and more so check those if you need something first
