Coaches. During the summer months well appointed stage
coaches run from London to Brighton, Bromley, Dorking, Guild¬
ford, St. Albans, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, Westerham, Windsor,
and Wycombe. Most of them start from the AVhite Horse Cellar,
Piccadilly, between 10 and 11 a.m. The fares vary from 2s. fid. to
14s. ; return fares one-half or two-thirds more ; box seats usually 2s.
fid. extra. Many of these coaches are driven by the gentlemen who
own them. They afford better opportunities in many respects for
viewing the scenery than railway trains, and may be recommended
in fine weather.
