You are entitled to a maximum of £90 to attend Court and then any reasonable expenses such as 45p a mile in the car, parking or a train etc.

Practice Direction 27:
7.3 The amounts which a party may be ordered to pay under rule 27.14(3)(c) (loss of earnings) and (d) (experts’ fees) are:
(1) for the loss of earnings or loss of leave of each party or witness due to attending a hearing or staying away from home for the purpose of attending a hearing, a sum not exceeding £95 per day for each person, and
Its actually £95. It went up a week or so ago!
