Rail tickets

If you need to travel on the train prices will vary depending on your journey. You can check the cost of your journey by visiting Trainline which will tell you the times and prices and allow you to buy the ticket online.

Alternatively, you can buy at the rail station you start your journey from.

When you arrive at the rail station you will need to buy a ticket before you board the train. You can do this from the ticket office if available or at a vending machine.
