Children under 5 travel free of charge so you will not have to purchase a ticket. Please keep in mind that they will not have a seat reservation so may have to stand or sit on your knee if the train is busy. If you wish them to have a seat reservation then you will need to purchase a child ticket.

Children aged between 5 and 15 are entitled to child fares which are half the adult price. The total fare quoted on the booking pages are with discounts already included (where applicable). Click on the ticket name on the left-hand side of the page to see if it is a discounted ticket.

One of the cheapest ways to purchase a child's fare is by using a Family Railcard. This gives a 33% discount on adult fares and a 60% discount on child fares when all travelling together. To find out more visit
