School Group Train Travel
A fun day out for your school group starts with the train. Schoolchildren and teachers alike get a sense of occasion when you make travelling by train a part of your school trip. Tables at every seat and ample space for everyone to sit back and enjoy the journey whilst the scenic countryside rolls by, you might even get a game or quiz in along the way.

Group discounts are based on our Semi Flex web fare, allowing you some flexibility to amend your school’s booking should you need to up to 24 hours before you are due to travel once your tickets have not been printed. Cancellations and amendments are at a fee of 20 percent.
