Who doesn’t love a bit of seasonal shopping in town – and how better to do it than by train? Here are our top tips to make your festive gift-buying go with a swing

1 Book early and take advantage of our amazingly cheap advance tickets (greateranglia.co.uk/tickets-fares/daily-tickets/advance-tickets), which offer you the best time to travel at the lowest available fare – meaning you’ve got more to spend on those all-important presents.

2 If your shopping ends up being a little more impromptu, then our off-peak fares (greateranglia.co.uk/tickets-fares/daily-tickets/off-peak-and-super-off-peak-tickets) offer excellent value for money. And if you’re off for festive fun with friends, GroupSave (greateranglia.co.uk/tickets-fares/discounts/groupsave-tickets) is the way to go, offering a third off for up to nine adults travelling together.

3 For the ease of doing all your shopping under one roof, hop on the train to Westfield Stratford City (greateranglia.co.uk/destinations/westfield-stratford-city), where you’ll find over 250 stores, as well as more than 80 places to eat and drink, bowling and a 17-screen cinema.

4 Why not maximise your shopping time and stay overnight in town? We have some fantastic deals on hotels – go to greateranglia.co.uk/offers/book-hotel for more information. Plus, if you’re staying overnight in London, save on your return train tickets with our special London Overnight Return. For details, see greateranglia.co.uk/london-overnight-return.
