Travel options

We offer a range of tickets for your journey, whether it’s for immediate, pre-planned or group travel.

Advance tickets are our cheapest tickets start from just £5 each way. If you can plan your journey in advance and be flexible on your time of travel, you'll get the best deal and enjoy big savings off the normal fares.

Anytime tickets are available on all trains at any time of day and are our most flexible tickets.

Off-Peak tickets are available for travel anytime at weekends and bank holidays and after the morning peak on weekdays.

Super Off-Peak tickets are our cheapest turn-up-and-go fares. They are available for travel anytime at weekends and bank holidays but have more weekday time restrictions than Off-Peak tickets. They are valid for return within one calendar month.

First class tickets are available on some of our services. Advance First tickets are available on selected services.

Season tickets offer great discounts for regular travellers. You can purchase weekly, monthly or annual station to station season tickets online or at any of our staffed stations.

We also have a range of tickets for groups, combined rail and bus travel, rover tickets and tickets for travel to and around London.

All tickets are sold subject to the National Rail Conditions of Carriage.
