All-day tickets
If you set off on one of our branch lines after the morning peak and will be coming back the same day, get an Off-Peak Day Return.
These are perfect for exploring a line in one day, as you can hop on and off as much as you like. They’re great value and there’s no need to book in advance – it’s the same price if you buy on the day.
When to buy
If you’re travelling from a station that has a ticket office or ticket machine, you must buy your ticket before you board the train. If you’re getting on at a station that doesn’t have these facilities, buy your ticket on the train from the guard.
Advance tickets
If you’re travelling from further afield, to get the best price you should buy your ticket in advance. Tickets can be bought up to 12 weeks in advance and the earlier you can book, the cheaper it will be. Buying a ticket for a long distance journey on the day will mean paying the walk up fare which can be very expensive.

Groups get a third off

If there are three or more of you travelling together in a group, you can buy a GroupSave ticket and save a third. This ticket is aimed at people who want to explore a particular area together in one day. It’s also great for exploring the Rail Ale Trails. Find out more.
