Grab Half Price Train Tickets To The North Next Week

How about travelling first class to Edinburgh for just £30?

If you fancy a jaunt up north in the New Year – or perhaps know someone who’d like to travel down to London for a visit – then prepare yourself for Virgin Trains’ 50%-off sale next week.

From 10am on Monday, Nov 20, there’ll be 250,000 standard and 50,000 first class tickets up for grabs to their east coast destinations, such as Leeds, York, Newcastle and Edinburgh, for journey dates in January and February.

Later in the week, at midnight on Thursday morning, their west coast franchise will be offering similar discounts to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow, along with other locations in-between.

The discount on standard class advance fares means you can visit Leeds for £8, Manchester for £11 or Edinburgh for £20, while the first class discounts mean you can travel in style for a steal.

Head here for east coast discounts and here for the west coast. Good luck!
