Plan your train journey

Resources to help you plan a journey by rail.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: When travelling on public transport, please follow the guidance about travelling safely on GOV.UK. This will help you stay safe and protect others by controlling the spread of the virus.

There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. However, the Government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet.

Operators are free to set their own requirements for wearing face coverings and you should check with the operator of the service you are using before travelling.

Further information on safer rail travel is available on the National Rail website.

For enquiries about train times, fares, season tickets and station information:

You can also buy your train tickets online with Qjump or Trainline.

Check which taxi services are available at rail stations across Great Britain with TrainTaxi.
