Rail passengers in East Anglia are now able to explore the region for less after Greater Anglia launched a ticket sale with 50,000 seats to and from London, from just £5 or £1 for children one way.

The train operator has launched special “Autumn Hare fares” which sees 50,000 seats available for several journeys across the network – including routes from Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester and Southend Victoria to London – from just £5 one way.

Tickets, which can only be bought online or via the Greater Anglia app, are available to purchase between 11 and 31 October and people can travel from 14 October to 21 November.

Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial, Customer Services and Train Presentation Director, said: “Travelling by train is cheaper than you think, and our new bargain Hare Fares mean people can travel for less this autumn.

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

“Hare Fares can be purchased throughout half term too, so families can enjoy great days out. Greater Anglia has a range of great value fares and up to four children can travel for just £1 each way with any adult.”

Hare Fares are available as Standard off-peak advance tickets only and are not valid with GroupSave and rail cards.

The offer applies to standard class tickets only, first class tickets are not included. Hare Fares are not valid on journeys wholly within the Oyster card area zones 1-6. Standard advance refunds rules apply.

Greater Anglia 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 over.

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

Customers are advised to use the full length of trains and platforms and to wear a face covering at busy stations and on trains. Increased cleaning and sanitation is being carried out so passengers can travel with confidence.
