Summer rail campaign aims to boost tourism

Thursday, 14 July 2016

Abellio Greater Anglia and tourism organisation, Visit East Anglia, have launched a new campaign to boost the region’s economy by attracting more tourists and day trippers.

Visit East Anglia and Abellio Greater Anglia have produced a free brochure promoting Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire, which aims to attract families and holidaymakers looking for fun-filled days out and Spring breaks.

Available from rail stations or online at, the brochure contains a guide to the best destinations in each county for shopping, culture and heritage, restaurants, museums, attractions and the great outdoors.  It also highlights the very best 2FOR1 offers valid in shops, restaurants, hotels, accommodation and attractions, which can only be used in conjunction with a valid train ticket. 

Helen Cutting of Visit East Anglia, said, “East Anglia is a fantastic place for a short break or holiday, whether you’re in search of a quiet get-away-from-it-all escape, a walking or cycling holiday, or a bustling city break brimming with culture, heritage and shopping.”

Abellio Greater Anglia’s Commercial Director, Andrew Camp, said, “The fast, easy links by rail mean your break is truly relaxing from the moment you leave home and with the great range of money saving offers and Advance fares from Abellio Greater Anglia, visitors can enjoy a summer break for less.”

Further savings can be made with the ‘Friends and Family’ Railcard, Abellio Greater Anglia’s Advance fares and GroupSave tickets, which can be booked via the website at, and £2 walk up child tickets. Terms and conditions apply.
