    Do you think you made the right choice - are you glad you moved away/stayed close or do you wish you'd done something different? :cookie:

    4 hours by train, and absolutely love being that far away!

    Just under 50 miles. It was perfect. The train was only two stops (not a big train fan), my dad could get to me in less than an hour in the car if I needed him, but visits had to be properly planned - there was no 'Oh, we were in the area'.

    117 miles, no direct train link! So glad I made this decision-hometown was boring as hell and my school year was full of genuinely nasty people, so getting far away was the best decision I ever made! People are actually nice up north

    Almost exactly 200 miles for me - no regrets so far! It takes 3-3.5 hours to get home on the train, changing in London.

    114 miles, 3 hours from door to door by train and either walk or bus on one side and bus on the other.

    I keep being reminded that I should've gone to Durham but that's many many miles away.

    I haven't gone yet, but all 5 of my choices sit in the 50-100 mile ring so I thought it would be worth adding my vote...

    Not so much moved as commuted... Totally didn't enjoy the days of 200 mile round trips with rush hour London to contend with. Don't recommend.

    I haven't gone yet, but my insurance is Kent, which is 190 miles away, and costs like £70 one way to get to from here by train

    Because we generally use miles in the UK :bunny: Silly, maybe but that's how it goes
