What type of ticket should I buy?

If you set off on one of the 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.

 

Off-Peak tickets are available all year round.
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, you should buy your ticket in advance to get the best price. Tickets can be bought up to 12 weeks in advance. The earlier you book, the cheaper it can be. Buying a ticket for a long distance journey on the day will mean paying the walk up fare which can be very expensive.
