Sorry Ragster but there isn't a nice way to travel in the UK!

Buses are infrequent and cramped.

Motorways are congested and bland.

Trains can be ok if going direct, changing can be annoying as some British train stations aren't the most informative.
Trains are ok if not travelling at peak times when they can be overfull.
A tip, buy your ticket in advance if you can.
Virgin trains are the best to travel on but I don't think they operate on the line you'll be using.

I travel by train quite a bit and on the whole find it the most enjoyable and relaxing way to travel.

How long are you at Carnforth for?
