Savvy Tips for Booking Cheap Train Tickets to London
Traveling to London by train can be a great way to explore the city and its surrounding areas. But it can be expensive if you don’t know how to get the best deals. Here are some savvy tips for booking cheap train tickets to London.
One of the best ways to get cheap train tickets is to book as early as possible. Most train companies offer discounts for tickets booked in advance, so it pays to plan ahead. If you know when you’re traveling, try to book your tickets at least two weeks in advance. This will give you more time to compare prices and find the best deals.
Look for Special Offers
Train companies often run special offers and promotions, so it pays to keep an eye out for these. Look out for discounts on certain routes or days of travel, as well as promotional codes that can be used on certain journeys. You may also find that certain companies offer discounts when you book multiple tickets at once, so it’s worth checking this out too.
Take Advantage of Railcards
If you’re a frequent traveler, then a railcard could be a great way to save money on your train tickets. Railcards are available for both adults and children, and they can give you up to 1/3 off most rail fares. They’re also valid on most major train companies, so it’s worth looking into if you plan on traveling regularly.
By following these tips, you should be able to find some great deals on train tickets when traveling to London. Don’t forget that booking early is key if you want to get the best prices, so make sure you plan ahead.

I dont “like” to read on my phone
Or on a computer, really. I do plenty of it but w/o the patience i’ve learned w/ print. W/ patience comes focus, which goes on its merry way not tithering. A great app for reading when you’ve left your hard copy behind, which arrives promptly, probably before you knew it. The week or two behind i’m usually at w/ print (often longer or alrogether lost depending on fluctuations in my schedule) does not exist here. I’m as current as a reader in the UK. I haven’t tried printing from here, but maybe that’s something i would do w longer stories ive since recycled or that are from the archive. There is a “download” option for each issue. On my iphone, I’m sure I could. You are not going to get anything more here than what you came for. A rare thing indeed in this hypertechno, online world we’re in. A blessed thing indeed. Thanks,
Does not support active reading like the web site does
Why would the LRB deliver an otherwise solid mobile app, that doesn’t support annotations! Hopefully that is only temporary, because I enjoy reading much more when I can markup my copy with highlights and margin notes. Luckily, I can do so by generating a PDF of an article off the LRB’s web site, usually via the Safari web browser’s Markup command. Many PDF readers allow me to handwrite margin notes on a tablet, and highlight passages, names and expressions that spark my interest. I derive so much more pleasure and benefit from an article when I engage it actively like this. While it’s great that the LRB’s web version offers the capability, please support me in a future version of the app. Generating a good PDF of the article inside the app would be perfect, as I can then archive my annotations in my favorite note-taking app.
Great app but text sizing is a blunt instrument
This app functions really well and is very easy to use, and it is a wonderful addition particularly during the pandemic when paper copies arrive late or sometimes not at all. But the choice of font size needs some work. There are only three or four settings and the difference — on an iPad mini — between the smallest size and the next largest is comically large. The smallest size means about 39 lines of an average 10 words each on the screen. He next size up is 25 lines of an average of about 6-7 words per line. There really should be something in between.

How I used to love and now hate the London Review of Books
Speaking words of wisdom, LRB
I would read the London Review of Books from front to back. I had to read it all, from front to back. I couldn’t miss any part of what I then saw as the absolute requirement of reading the London Review of Books and absorbing all of the information contained in the London Review of Book s (excluding classifieds and incidental advertising about books, copywriters, book-based dating etc).
I certainly couldn’t dip in and out of the London Review of Books . The London Review of Books told me, so I thought, everything that I needed to know. The best people would provide me with the best information about what I needed to know. It was a joy and my mind expanded and my taste developed and I became a refined intellectual.
I couldn’t read fast enough to keep up
This reading of each and every London Review of Books ended up making me very anxious ; or perhaps, my latent anxiety overwhelmed my joy of reading the London Review of Books . I couldn’t read fast enough to keep up with the bi-weekly production of these reviews of books.
I was reading nothing other than reviews of books in the London Review of Books . I had no remaining time to read the books they were reviews of, nor any other book. I no longer took any joy in the London Review of Books; it simply became a task or duty to read each copy before the next was delivered , and I began to skim read and hated myself for skim reading the London Review of Books , because I loved the London Review of Books .
Copies of the London Review of Books in their cellophane wrapping piled up , and I began to be frightened of them, frightened of the reading demands the London Review of Books was placing on me.
Eventually I had to stop reading the London Review of Books , and the pile of London Review of Books filled a drawer which I kept entirely for the London Review of Books . I terminated my subscription because I could not accept reading the London Review of Books without reading it front to back (excluding classifieds , and incidental advertising etc). I couldn’t touch a copy for years , and refused offers from friends of their (used and filthy) copies of the London Review of Books ; those friends who couldn’t throw away their own copies due to the high status of the London Review of Books , and its high cost.
This year, after having said how I used to love and now hated the London Review of Books and couldn’t handle my subscription to it and would never want another one, my neighbour subscribed me behind my back and for free to the London Review of Books ; a free gift subscription . They were delivered to my home, now sealed in a paper envelope rather than the cellophane ( environmental responsibility ).
I opened the London Review of Books , the first I had opened for ten years , and prepared myself for a front to back read. I liked how folded it was , and how much better it was to read a fresh copy than the used (filthy) copies which had been pushed on me by friends who primarily wanted to indicate to me that they read the London Review of Books by offering their (used and filthy) copies — thinking that I respected the London Review of Books and its users.
I began reading and my attention wouldn’t hold. I skipped ahead and read half of one article, a line of another, a title of another. I tried to read the poetry and I still couldn’t understand a single line of it , and had no will to try.
Whereas before I could only think TJClarkPerryAndersonTariqAliNealAscherson thoughts, now I could think of no such London Review of Book thoughts, not even Mar iaWarnerJohnLanchesterJamesButlerAdam Mar sJones thoughts could enter my brain. My brain could take in no London Review of Books information , and could form no London Review of Books thoughts.
All this learning was in two dimensions
I considered what was wrong. Part of it was that every article was written in a this is how things are tone, all so tasteful and knowledgeable and clever. Yes, I knew that I would learn a lot, but it felt like all this learning was in two dimensions. It was a very narrow field.
I considered: I had read the London Review of Books in order to belong to the LRB club and the knowledge I had wanted to acquire was wholly in order to become a member of this club. And the way the London Review of Books reviewers write — their style — is that of the self-assurance of a certain sort of group of people who are self-assured , or who want to write and be read among — and be among — those who are self-assured.
I reflected that England is one big private members club , and the LRB is just a part of this club (the letters “ LRB ” being a spoken code to enter that club). I discovered that this LRB club wasn’t in Bloomsbury, but in Hampstead , and I discovered that having been invited to play croquet on Hampstead Heath, in the Hampstead Heath Croquet Association, in which the words “elle are bee” occurred frequently.
I don’t want someone writing to me as if I were a member of their club , or want to be a member of their club. Everything in this country is a private members club, in which cordial agreement, shared references , and a shared picture of the world is required. A shared belief in what are the right views about the right subjects is required. These people — you? — know the facts and know how to pronounce the facts in the right way. Each article, each sentence of the LRB asks: are you a member of our club? aren’t you a member of our club? Club members look down from their vast knowledge, supported by the vast institutions of their education and the vast institutions of their working life. LRB is a performance of Englishness, just as much as the Hampstead Croquet Association is — often attracting performances by those most insecure in their Englishness.
I reject this LRB club and I will not become a member of it and nor will I cancel my free subscription to the London Review of Books .

John Banville in London Review of Books
“The Physicist and the Philosopher is an extraordinarily rich and wide-ranging work. Canales has rescued from near oblivion a fascinating, highly significant debate that is still relevant in an age which has begun uneasily to question the hegemony of science and its uncontrollable child, technology. … She gives an account of the debate and its many ramifications that is admirable for its clarity – the book is aimed at the common reader, and, I should add, at the common reviewer – and strives at all times to be fair to both figures in the debate.” –John Banville
The way Canales wields the tools of the trade suggests nothing unorthodox, but where the bristles of the besom meet the hardwood of history, changes in audiences and access technologies make for a narrative that is new in ways that speak to the identity of history and philosophy of science and, for better or ill, hint at features of its future.
The book is incredibly well researched; there is no statement that Canales could not back up with references to original sources. Rather than taking sides, the author lets Bergson and Einstein speak for themselves, carefully contextualizing their dispute.
At the heart of this complex picture, there was a key epistemological problem, the veritable object of the dispute: both Einstein and Bergson agreed on the “matters of fact” (contrary to what his critics suggested, Bergson did not contest Einstein’s results), but who had the authority to decide the true nature of time, the physicist or the philosopher? The notion that Einstein “won” the debate is, ultimately, tied to the victory of a conception of knowledge according to which “science” has more authority than all other fields of research combined. Back in 1922, Bergson’s arguments still posed a serious threat to Einstein’s theory.
Perspectives on Science
Adam Tamas Tuboly
Science popularization might take different forms. In the early twentieth century, Sir James Jeans and Sir Arthur Eddington presented the most successful endeavors. Philosophers were highly unimpressed and disturbed by these popular works and various authors declared their disagreement with the physicists' philosophical books against their own philosophical background. I will discuss three different philosophers, L. Susan Stebbing, C. E. M. Joad and Philipp Frank, whose three lines of criticism represent three different forms of philosophy, social engagement, and scientific outlook. What is interesting is that there was a point when the most diverse philosophers (of science) agreed in contrast of their common enemy, namely, those popularizing scientists that have their reputation and use it to propagate false, or at least misleading views about science, culture, and values. What we shall see is how far this agreement went among these figures and how the divergent strategies culminated in very similar results regarding knowledge dissemination.
Modern Physics and the Philosophy of Science
This article is a summary of a book which I have published as an Amazon Kindle book. As a retired professor of anthropology who has a strong interest in the philosophy of science, I am now pursuing a life-long interest in physics. However, in reading Modern Physics, I have become more and more critical of the approach it uses, and I believe that the methodology used is unscientific and tends toward metaphysics and mysticism. Hence the book is about epistemology (how we know what we know), primarily focusing on language and logic as ways of knowing. Some physicists have admitted that the physics enterprise is now more mysticism than science. Among these notable physicists are Fritjof Capra and David Bohm who essentially said that modern physics is more similar to Eastern mysticism than Western Science. As an anthropologist who has studied linguistics, I am conscious of the way language is used in science. Two of the terms that are often confused in physics are space and time. Although space and time are metaphysical concepts, they are treated as physical entities since Einstein’s relativity came to dominate physics thinking. Conceiving of these metaphysical entities as physical has led to the vain search for particles of space (space-atons, if you will) and time (perhaps time-atons) as physicists try to quantize space and time as they have quantized matter and energy. Consider this confusion regarding the concept of space. Michelson-Morley found no evidence for ether filling space, in Special Relativity, Einstein said that space is vacuum (nothingness), in General Relativity, Einstein said that space is something material that is subject to be warped by mass thus causing planets to revolve around a star, in quantum physics, space is said to be nothing and something (a quantum foam of particles is constantly being born out of the vacuum). It is apparent that physicists have relied far too much on mathematics and paid much too little attention to the accuracy and consistency of language. It is the thesis of this book that the mathematics of a theory can be no better than the verbal logic upon which these mathematics rest. The book also examines the evidence that supports relativity and quantum mechanics. It was found that the evidence offered as conclusive support for relativity (Haefele-Keating airliner experiment and GPS synchronization) is not nearly as airtight as physicists make it out to be. It is also found that there is contradictory evidence offered for the various interpretations of quantum theory. For example, how does the uncertainty principle of quantum mechanics explain the certainty regarding the high level of accuracy of Cesium clocks which depend on quantum emissions? Some physicists I have read are beginning to question the accuracy of the premises upon which Modern Physics rests. Perhaps, it requires an outside perspective to see through the thought molds and group think of insiders more completely. Hopefully, this book provides some insight on the fallacies of physics based in language from an outsider not socialized in the halls of academic physics. If you have any interest in reading my book in its entirety, you may download it from Amazon.com for a free 30-day trial.

This paper examines how such fundamental notions as causality and determinism have undergone changes as a direct result of empirical discoveries. Although such notions are often regarded as metaphysical or a priori concepts, experimental discoveries at the beginning of this century—radioactive decay, blackbody radiation and spontaneous emission—led to a direct questioning of the notions of causality and determinism. Experimental evidence suggests that these two notions must be separated. Causality and indeterminism are compatible with the behavior of quantum-mechanical systems. The argument also sheds some light on the Duhem-Quine thesis, since experimental results at the periphery of the conceptual scheme directly affect conceptions at the very core.
It’s hard to imagine that any single author will ever outdo this account of the recent history of our concepts of time.
