Fares

Follow the links below for more information about our fares and tickets, and also how to purchase your tickets in advance. Forward booking is no longer essential, you can either book a Day Rover in advance (and save 15% into the bargain) or purchase a Day Rover, Return or Single journey ticket on the day.

Fares, discounts and special offers

Whether you are at the Railway for just one trip along the line or a full day hopping on and off and visiting local attractions, whether you are individuals or a family, young or not so young, the Railway has the right ticket for you.

The Right Ticket For You

To make the most of your visit, we recommend the purchase of a Day Rover which may be booked in advance of your visit. However, if your time is limited a Full Line Return ticket is available, to purchase on the day from the ticket office at any of our stations.

Discounts for Wheelchair Users and Essential Carers

Wheelchair Users

A wheelchair user travelling in their wheelchair can obtain a 50% discount on the relevant Day Rover or Full Line fare. This will also apply to special events but not on special trains.

One person (whether a necessary carer or not) can travel with the wheelchair user and also receive 50% discount on their Day Rover or Full Line fare, provided they purchase their tickets together and travel together at all times. Discounted tickets cannot be used for any other ticket type or in conjunction with any other promotional offer, discount or free ticket.

Persons who are unable to visit the Railway without a Carer

Visitors who are only able to visit us with the assistance of a carer may claim a Free Carer’s Ticket for their carer, provided they purchase a standard full priced Adult, Concession or Child Rover or Full Line ticket (as applicable) for themselves. In order to claim the Free Carer’s Ticket the disabled visitor (or the carer, on behalf of the disabled passenger) must present one of the following items of documentation, in the name of the disabled passenger:

• Disability Living Allowance or Attendance Allowance award letter (dated within the last 12 months).
