Travel Inspiration


Summer is finally here - jump on a train and make a splash in the East Midlands or further afield.

When you book direct, you avoid sneaky hidden fees and credit card charges – helping you pocket the pounds for your day out.

Here's some ideas of where to visit:


Leap to London and visit classic attractions such as London Zoo or Madam Tussauds or take a boat trip  along the Thames. Check out our London for Less guide for great suggestions on how you can get the most out of the capital, without breaking the bank.


Enjoy a fun-packed family day out or weekend break in Nottingham, the home of Robin Hood. Feeling adventurous? Visit Nottingham Castle Museum or explore the City of Caves. 


Pop to Leicester and discover the vibrant city. Visit the Richard III exhibition or, if theatre is your thing, catch a show at Curve or De Montfort Hall.


Visit Manchester and shop until you drop at the Trafford Centre. As one of the most diverse cities in the UK, there’s plenty to do in Manchester for the whole family to enjoy. If you have sports fans in the family, you could visit the National Football Museum and learn all about the beautiful game.
