When can I travel by rail from Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire this Easter?

Wednesday, 10 April 2019

Rail passengers in Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire can enjoy great days out by rail over the Easter weekend.

A majority of the Greater Anglia network is unaffected by engineering work this Easter.

Network Rail is carrying out some track improvement work, with most of it taking place on Easter Sunday.

Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial and Customer Service Director, said: “Most of our network is free from engineering work this Easter, meaning people can enjoy trips to the capital or any of the other excellent destinations which we serve.

“Network Rail will be carrying out some engineering work and we would advise passengers to check before they travel.”

People can save money with a railcard, and groups of three or more can save with Groupsave. Children travel for just £2 with any adult and great-value fares start from as low as £6.
