Winter Travel Offers Announced

Northern has come up with some great value offers this winter for travel on the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle and Leeds-Morecambe lines.  The offers are available to local Dales Railcard holders and West Yorkshire ENCTS pass holders too.  It’s a great way to save £££s on your travel costs, and enjoy a day shopping in the city, at the seaside, or hiking in the fells.  You choose!


The offer price has been held at last year’s rate. This winter the added benefit is that a special day ranger ticket, exclusive to Dales Railcard holders, allows travel anywhere along the route all day. The offer is available until Friday, 23 March 2018. The ticket will be valid on all trains except the Monday to Friday 0556 Carlisle to Leeds service. There is no time restriction on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays.  These special price tickets can only be purchased at a staffed station or from the conductor on the train.

Pricing for the Settle-Carlisle line is £9.00 per adult and £4.50 per child (for up to four accompanying children).

On the Bentham line, the price is £7.00 per adult and £3.50 per child (for up to four accompanying children).

Normal conditions of travel will apply during the offer. The following dates are excluded from the promotion:
• Saturday 2, 9, 16, 23 December 2017
• Sunday 3, 10, 17, 24 December 2017
• Saturday 10 February – Saturday 17 February 2018 inclusive

You can buy a Dales Railcard here or from the booking offices at Appleby, Carlisle, Settle or Skipton (and Carnforth from early 2018 when refurbishment is completed).  The Dales Railcard is still only £10; it is valid for 12 months giving a third off normal and advance fares with discounts for accompanying children too.


This year’s offer is for a Day Ranger valid from Leeds on the Settle-Carlisle & Bentham lines for ENCTS pass holders only. It is not available for Metrocard or MCard holders. The offer is valid until Friday, 16 March 2018 (except 12-16 February 2018 inclusive).

The cost will be £14.00 per adult and £7.00 per child (maximum four children travelling with the ENCTS pass holder). Passengers must produce valid ENCTS issued by Metro (WYCA) at time of purchase and have this with them when traveling. The offer ticket is available with no restrictions on times of travel.

These special price tickets can only be purchased at a staffed station or from the conductor on the train.
