From to guided walks to family fun, Greater Anglia is encouraging people to get out and explore Cambridgeshire by train this month.

To make it easier and even more convenient to travel by train, Greater Anglia has a range of 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 March which are accessible by train:

The Cambridge Festival

From 13 to 28 March, the Cambridge Festival, from the University of Cambridge, offers free talks, films, exhibitions, walks and family events covering all aspects of the world-leading research happening at Cambridge. Take a look at the packed programme here: www.festival.cam.ac.uk/events

William Blake’s Universe exhibition, Fitzwilliam Museum

Discover the William Blake’s Universe exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. This new exhibition brings together the largest-ever display of works by the radical British artist, printmaker, and poet, alongside artworks by his European contemporaries such as the German romantic painters Philipp Otto Runge and Caspar David Friedrich – many of which have never been displayed publicly in the UK until now.

Ely Guided Walks

Visit Ely’s Guided Walks programme has a range of fascinating guided tours to help visitors to get a greater insight into the town, it’s history and architecture, with many dates throughout March. For more info visit: www.visitely.org.uk/guided-walks-ely/

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 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.

For the best value fares, passengers should book in advance and the earlier customers book, the more they can save.
