Buy train tickets to any destination in Britain – no booking fee

From city to coast, the south west is opening up again this summer – and we’ve got you covered.

Whether it’s back to things you’ve missed like a day at the seaside with the family, trying something new like stargazing in one of the world’s best sky-watching spots or having a fun packed day at Thorpe Park or Chessington World of Adventures, there’s an incredible amount to do across the region.

You can book tickets up to 12 weeks in advance to get the best deal, and thanks to our Price Promise, if you find them at a cheaper price elsewhere, we’ll refund you the difference.

If Advance tickets are not on sale yet for when you want to travel then be the first to know with our cheap ticket alerts.

So what’s on this summer?

With the south west opening up again, there’s no doubt that most of us are keen to get back out and explore again!

There are many festivals, fairs and regional events penned in for the summer and beyond.

Perhaps you have been catching up on your reading during lockdown? Check out the classic books that were set in our region and explore the locations the writers themselves lived in and visited.

More of a foodie? Then our list of traditional local foods might suit your tastes better when it comes to planning your next trip.

Of course, traditional treats still await – the beaches at Bournemouth for that day of sand and sea (or lesser known beaches to explore and discover!), the beauty of the New Forest and its wildlife residents for a weekend’s exploring, or even a day out in London to see the sights.
