On Red Dot Day, thousands of cheap tickets will be available from Nottingham to exciting destinations right across the East Midlands Trains’ network for just £20 return for adults and £10 for children.  Day-trippers can choose from the hustle and bustle of London, just 1 hour and 42 minutes away from Nottingham, or travel on one of East Midlands Trains’ regular services to Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield or Norwich.

Travel is available throughout the whole day, and to buy tickets, simply visit, download a voucher and take it along to Nottingham station before Saturday to make sure you don’t miss out.

Marc Turley, Head of Commercial for East Midlands Trains, said: “We launched our innovative Red Dot Days over six years ago and they’ve always been really popular with our customers.  We know people eagerly await details of the next one and we’re confident that the timing of this year’s Red Dot Day is perfectly suited to people wanting to do something exciting to mark the start of the school holidays.

“And, at just £60 for a family of four to travel to London, or to one of the many other popular cities on our network, I’m sure there will be lots of people wanting to take advantage of this great offer.”

East Midlands Trains has also teamed up with NET to enable customers to also benefit from discounted tram travel for just £1.50 single or £2.50 return when buying train tickets at Nottingham station. Car parking is available on Saturdays at Nottingham station for just £4 a day.
