If you drive it would be cheaper to hire a car fuel it pay for parking and drive it back again surely.
Trains are ridiculously expensive too.
Maybe if you don't mind the long time on board a coach could be a better option if you can find one of these that do a deal like we have around here, they advertise Cheshire to Edinburgh for £38.00 all in. and Cheshire to London £30.00 all in, I know it is at their time schedule but just an option.

Steffie, is it possible for you to get down to Edinburgh? (drive down maybe...or take the coach)

You would have more luck with getting a direct flight from Edinburgh to Gatwick and it only takes about 1hr 20 mins and for less than half the price they are quoting on that website you posted.
