Greater Anglia is encouraging people to get out and explore Cambridgeshire by train this Spring with a range of discounts.

To make it easier and even more convenient to travel by train, Greater Anglia has several great value fares available such as discounted Advance tickets, Ranger tickets and the Family & Friends Railcard.

You can save a small fortune on parking when you travel by train and avoid queues of traffic in the county’s tourist hot spots.

Here are some of the events happening in Cambridgeshire in April which are accessible by train:

Ely Farmers and Craft Markets

Combine a day exploring Ely with a visit to their well established Craft, Food and Vintage market and Farmers Market on 13 April. At the Craft, Food and Vintage market you will find a wonderful mix of quirky antiques, books, artisan produce and handmade crafts along with street food from authentic Thai and Lebanese food to amazing cakes and freshly baked bread. The Farmers Market offers top-quality local fruit and vegetables, flowers, plants, shrubs and herbs – plus a fantastic mix of meat, cakes, pies, pastries and preserves.

Punting in Cambridge

Save 10% on Scholars Punting in Cambridge with a rail ticket and enjoy a traditional punting tour of Cambridge. Chauffeured boats of up to 12 passengers take a 45-minute trip through the heart of the city centre, passing the historic riverside colleges with an interesting narrative delivered by the driver.

Greater Anglia’s Commercial and Customer Services Director, Martin Moran, said,

“Our region has so much to offer and whether it’s a trip to the city or coast, shopping or sightseeing, we are giving people more money to spend on having a great time by helping them save money on their train fare.”

Greater Anglia also offers a range of Advance fares that offer customers savings of between 60 and 70% on the standard walk-up prices, plus 2FOR1 on entry to many top attractions in London and East Anglia.

The train operator also has a range of great value fares which are available all year round, including Duo, for two people travelling together, GroupSave for people travelling in a group of three or more, a special London evening out fare for those staying overnight in the capital and a Club 50 discount for those aged 50 and over.
