Following the government's recent decision's regarding covid-19 legislation, and the easing of restrictions, we are pleased to announce that our standard train tickets are once again valid for all-day travel.
Any passengers who have already pre-booked their standard tickets for upcoming trains will also be able to travel all day on the date specified on their ticket, not just the specific departure time indicated.
In light of this announcement, journey's can now also begin at any of our stations - although Market Bosworth is currently still closed, but will be reopening very soon - watch this space!
We would like to remind all our customers that our cleaning policies and other "covid-19 safe" systems are still in place, and we would encourage the use of masks still in crowded areas and in our open coaches.
We hope to welcome you on-board again soon...
