Found a discount code on Spotted:Didcot LTM6.50 which seems legit.

Whilst there are over 100 tickets left for the whole journey, the part fares from Frome are showing only 5 available.

Edit - Now only 4. I've just bought one

Promotion at https://www.facebook.com/graham.ellis.5055/posts/10155262443007094 ... muted until I get confirmation that there's enough tickets from Frome to satisfy demand.

Seating allocation adjusted ... and we are now marketing the opportunity a bit.

For London / Reading passengers... there's also an opportunity to travel on the train from London to Frome (10:33), from where Buses of Somerset are arranging a mystery tour prior to rejoining the train at Weston-super-mare for a 17:00 departure.      I highly commend this option - there's places to see and you'll not be in the coach all the time. I'm privy to where it's going and it looks to me as if certain places along the way are being very generous in what they provide.
