Convenience Connecting the East Midlands'

London is steeped in old traditions that have remained unchanged for centuries. So the contrast between the modernity of travel on the East Midlands train and the places it can take you is quite striking. This fast train service to and from London has been designed to make your journey as pleasant as possible. With amenities like curtains, lights and tables to create a more comfortable, homey environment in which to catch up on work or simply relax and unwind. The schedules are just as stress reducing, with frequent departures throughout the East Midlands' including stops in Leicester, Derby, Sheffield, Nottingham and Lincoln. Plus, you can save money with cheaper off-peak parking and make the most of your day in London with a late-night return. There are also especially early runs from Leicester, Wellingborough and Kettering that arrive into St Pancras International in time to catch the first Eurostar of the day. And there’s a robust range of regional services. From Derby and Sheffield you can explore the dramatic landscapes of the Peak District. From Leicester, why not visit the home of the pork pie in Melton Mowbray? You can even walk in the footsteps of Robin Hood in Nottingham and Worksop, or enjoy a weekend break at the seaside in Skegness.

Then when it’s time to go, you’ll find convenient airport connections from East Midlands Parkway to East Midlands Airport, Liverpool South Parkway to John Lennon Airport, as well as trains to Luton Airport Parkway. Centuries-old traditions? Certainly. And it seems one of them very much in place today is attention to detail.

A rail pass entitles you to travel on European trains in a specific geographic area, for a specific number of days. If you are planning on taking three or more train trips, a rail pass is often more cost effective than individual train tickets.
