Then as now there were often several ways of travelling. How much could
they afford? What did they need to take with them? How important was
speed or a journey at a convenient time? Did they own their own horse /
pony / coach?
If they were moving house a pony and trap might be used - I have been
told this was how some of my ancestors moved all the way from Devon to
Yorkshire. In the 1920s/ 30s there were plenty of trains from London to
Margate, but many holiday makers went by steamer from the Thames and
around the coast (I think it was cheaper).
I would be wary of making assumptions.
