My daughter would like to see Manon for her 16th birthday which is on the 3 October. She happens to have a school teacher training day on her birthday so I was thinking of either leaving work early and whisking her straight to London after school (we live in York) for the opening performance on the 2nd to see Lamb and Vadim and staying over or day tripping down on her actual birthday for Cuthbertson and Ball. She would adore either cast. If we day trip then the last train back is at 11. Do any experienced ROH goers get this train and how tight is it time wise getting from CV to KC at that time? Thanks!
As of yesterday, Chiltern Trains are running a service from London Marylebone to Oxford https://www.chilternrailways.co.uk/london-oxford It claims to take you to "the heart" of Oxford, though as I recall the station is quite a way out of the city centre. I'm sure I shall carry on using the Oxford Tube coach service, but I thought I'd mention it in case it's of use to people travelling to performances at the theatre there as an addition to the service from Paddington.
I've just found out that because of extended engineering work on Southeastern from Christmas Eve up to and including January 3rd there will be no rail services into Cannon Street, Waterloo East and Charing Cross, plus no Southeastern services to London Bridge. You might want to bear this in mind if any of these are your usual way of getting to the Coliseum and/or Royal Opera House (and also South Bank and so on ...) I also assume, from last year's experience, that travel will probably be totally hell on January 4th as well.
