Internship interview at a far away location

I was wondering what's the furthest you guys have travelled to have an internship interview and how long the interview was? I am currently based in Coventry and have an interview in London. Normally I wouldn't mind but the interview is only 30 minutes long. The train tickets is going to cost around £80. I was wondering if it's worth asking them for a different method of interview.
Depending on the company they may reimburse the cost of travel so long as it's reasonable.

Ask this before you try asking about another interview method.

Definitely ask about travel expenses, a lot of companies will be willing to reimburse. I've heard of some places doing Skype interviews (provided there aren't any group activities). I just recently had to cancel an assessment centre due to travel. It was at the other end of the UK and had multiple rounds. I wasn't confident enough that I would get it to pay £170 - £200 per trip which of course is a bit much to be reimbursed for.
