Child Train Fares

Child fares are half the adult price or better with Greater Anglia

At Greater Anglia we believe the train is a great way for families to travel, with any children under 5 travelling free.

Children aged between 5-15 will be charged half the adult fare. With our range of Advance tickets on many routes this can be great value.

At 16, a young person will be charged an adult fare. For great savings on train travel for young adults find out more about the 16-25 Railcard

Family Day Travelcards

Family Day Travelcards allow accompanied children to travel to London from all Greater Anglia stations south of Manningtree/Harwich and Cambridge inclusive for only £2 each. Adults pay a discounted price as well!

They are valid at any time at weekends, and during the week on any train scheduled to arrive in London after 10:00. There are no evening return restrictions on the Family Travelcard.
