Valentine’s Day date ideas

Love is in the air. All you need is love. Roses are red, violets are blue… In the name of love… Don’t go and buy a cliche gift for your special someone this year. Skip the petrol station flowers and plan a perfect night out to knock their socks off. Add an extra element of surprise by making it a mystery voyage from station to destination. Make the effort (it needn’t cost a lot) and reap the rewards later. Plan now and save ⅓ when you buy your train tickets online in advance.

A night in the big city?

It's pretty handy having London, one of the most glamorous cities in the world, right on our doorstep. There are a billion things you could do in London for whatever kind of person you're planning to please. Here are a few that we think are fun dates, and you get a special 2FOR1 offer on only when you take the train - saving you a few bob for those special extras.

Seductive Sights

From the top of the London Eye or St Paul’s Cathedral to taking a romantic cruise along the river Thames with City Cruises - there’s nothing like taking in London’s finest views if you’re looking to impress.

Shoot to thrill

Send shivers down their spine or get them to leap into your arms with one of these blood-rushing experiences.

Escape to the coast

Whether for an overnight stay or a day away, whisk your beloved away to the closest coast to London. In 45 minutes you can be at the quaint fishing village of Leigh-on-Sea with its picturesque old town, famous cockles and charming pubs. Or within the hour buzzy Southend with its retro arcades, beautiful old pier, and restaurants.
