Grand Central & Connections
While Grand Central prides ourselves on providing cost-effective travel to communities across the North East and Yorkshire, we know that sometimes our customers may find their local stations more convenient. That's why we've worked with our sister company CrossCountry, as well as Northern and Transpennine Express in order to provide connecting fares between the following stations and London Kings Cross:
North East connections
