Faster Journey Times to London

Whether you travel for business or leisure thanks to our latest partnership with Network Rail our journey times to London St Pancras are now even faster!

The investment of almost £70 million is our biggest line speed improvement since December 2008 and has enabled us to reduce journey times on our Sheffield and Nottingham routes to and from London St Pancras, making London closer than ever from these stations and those in between.

Take a look at the table below to see what the improvements mean for you.

To London St Pancras Journey Time Time Saving
Sheffield 2hr 1min 6 mins
Chesterfield 1hr 49min 6 mins
Derby 1hr 29min 4 mins
Nottingham 1hr 42min 4 mins
East Midlands Parkway 1hr 24min 4 mins
Loughborough 1hr 17min 4 mins
Leicester 1hr 6min 3 mins

Fastest journey time between 0900 and 1700, Monday to Friday.  Time saving based on  winter 2012 and winter 2013 timetable comparison.*

With these great time savings you now have more time to spend in the capital, be it taking in the sights, visiting friends and family or getting that extra bit of preparation time in before that all important meeting!


Matlock to Nottingham Improvements

Matlock to Nottingham stations have also benefited from a journey reduction time of up to 11 minutes on journeys between Matlock and Nottingham stations, Monday to Saturday. So with more time to spend shopping at the two shopping centres Nottingham has to offer, simply take your pick from Victoria and Broadmarsh or even explore all of the shops in between!

We also have further improvements planned for May 2014, so look out for more to come!
