This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

  1. It’s definitely worth checking on Trainsplit for split savings on routes to/from the west country.

      Have used trainsplit for over a year and saved a lot of money compared with other sites that advertise cheap rail fares.

    Does anyone know if The Virgin West Coast line will have a sale for travel 20-26 March 2018?

      Hi, go on to Virgin West Coast cheap tickets then you can put in your travel details including dates – if cheap tickets aren’t available yet they will tell you and also take your email address to email you when the tickets you want are going on sale, I did this for tickets to London, good luck
