Whilst some of you will have booked a summer holiday, there are others who might prefer to stay at home and travel for days out in their region. If you prefer to travel by train, then it might be worth considering purchasing a Senior Rail Card which gives you 30% off train travel and only costs £30 per year. Details can be found at www.senior-railcard.co.uk/ and they also have ideas for days out and offers at some attractions.
