Ridiculously cheap fares as CLUB 55 returns to Wales and the Borders!: Barmouth

ARRIVA Trains Wales are delighted to be relaunching our fantastic low cost, off-peak travel offer for customers aged 55 or over.

Customers aged 55 or over can buy return travel anywhere on our network for just £27 - an ideal remedy to the January blues.

Travel from cities and towns across to Wales' outstanding coastline and discover new epic experiences all around our shores. If the coast isn’t your bag then why not take the train to some of the exciting cities and towns like Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff or Shrewsbury that are all easily accessible from our network.

Marketing Manager for Arriva Trains Wales Matthew Breese said: "We're really fortunate to run services to so many epic places across Wales and the Borders, so regardless of what you fancy there is a destination to suit you.

"It could be a trip to one of the big towns or cities we serve, a rural escape, or a journey to our costal shores.

"We love running Club 55, and we know our customers absolutely love it too."
