Enjoy the London nightlife Monday to Saturday with our Evening Out tickets

Looking to head into London for an evening out or perhaps you want to enjoy a new place away from the capital? Then our new Evening Out ticket is a great option with the flexibility to travel at times to suit you.

The Evening Out ticket is designed for shorter journeys taking up to around an hour, Monday to Saturday, letting you go out and enjoy the nightlife in your local towns and cities. It’s available on many routes as a single or day return ticket, as well as a Day Travelcard, so you can get the freedom to use all services across London once you arrive in the city.

If you’re travelling into London, it’s valid on any train that arrives into a London Terminals station after 14:00 and you can return on any train after 19:00 (or after 19:05 from Vauxhall and 19:10 from Clapham Junction).

If you’re heading out of London, it’s valid on any train after 12:00 (except during our evening peak, after 15:59 and before 19:01 from Waterloo, 19:05 from Vauxhall and 19:10 from Clapham Junction). You can return at any time.

For all other journeys you can travel at any time after 12:00.

Help! I need to travel on a different train - can I change my ticket?

Sunday Out tickets are valid at any time and give you flexibility if your plans change. Like other day return tickets, if you want to change the day of travel, you'll need to amend your ticket. We may charge an administration fee to do this.

What happens if I miss my next train because of a delay?

A Sunday Out ticket is valid at any time on Sundays so just travel on the next available service.

If a delay on one of our trains means you end up being 15 minutes late or more to your destination, you may be entitled to claim compensation under our Delay Repay scheme.

There are engineering works now and I don't want to travel. Can I get a refund?

If there's a change in journey times or mode of travel (a bus replacement service) and you no longer want to travel you can claim a full refund on the unused tickets from your original retailer.

If you're buying your tickets more than six weeks before you travel, we always recommend that you check timetables again at the six-week mark. This is because of changes to how the industry plans trains for engineering work.
