booked with megabus because we wanted to be in london early, and at £6.50 for 2 adults it beats the price of a train hands down!
when we arrived in sheffield to get on the megabus, we were told by the driver that our booking reference said we were to get on the next bus, but as it hadn't arrived by the time he was setting off we were allowed to go with us (our times for departure and arrival were exactly those of this coach, and the next one didn't turn up whilst we were there)
on the way down our coach had some problems, so we pulled into a service station and switched onto the coach already waiting for us. We still managed to arrive in london for just after 9.30 (our estimated arrival time)
I would highly recommend the megabus service to anyone, it is cheap, you can be in london from sheffield first thing in the morning, and as it is a direct service after all the pick-ups, it is a lot easier to sleep on the coach. we had a 5 hour journey and slept most of it.
We had to get the train home from london after our holiday, out of convenience and because there wasn't any coaches stopping in the vicinity, and we both said that we would rather take the megabus again than the train.
