Can trains be used for non-essential travel?

The current government guidelines suggest that you may travel by train for non-essential journeys such as staycations and visiting family and friends. We've made our trains and stations as safe as possible so that you can travel in confidence. Please be aware of any local or regional lockdowns that may affect your travel.

We want to give you travel confidence with our safe travel pledge. We're looking forward to welcoming you onboard.
