Without a seat reservation, you may have to stand on these trains.


Peak Travel Restrictions lifted

From December 23rd until January 1st inclusive, peak time travel restrictions affecting Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak tickets will not apply on Hull Trains services.  As such, you can use these tickets on any Hull Trains service during this period. Time restrictions will come back into force on the morning of January 2nd.

Please note that Advance tickets remain only valid on the service(s) you have booked to travel on.


Christmas food and drink 

The week before Christmas we will be offering our first class passengers a few extra treats, just to get you in the Christmas spirit.  This will be in addition to our first class week day offer that will continue up to Thursday 21st December and will start again on 2nd January.  For the period in between we will be offering our normal weekend choice of breakfast rolls, porridge, warmed all butter croissants or fresh fruit on early services and for the remainder of the day, variety packs of delicious locally made (in Hull) sandwiches with a seasonal twist will be available. 

During the whole festive period the Cafe Bar will be open offering an extensive range of hot and cold drinks, snacks, beers, wines and spirits and a selection of hot and cold sandwiches
