Train fares

There are various types of ticket available on trains, ranging from "anytime" tickets valid on any train at any time to discounted advance-purchase tickets valid only on specified trains.

The fare for your train journey will often depend on the time of day, and sometimes the day of the week.

The route you choose can also affect the fare.
