Top back-to-school activities

29th August 2019

Back to school can be exciting but may be a bit daunting too for kids.

We know that it’s never easy going from full-time holiday and play mode back to concentrating in class every day; who wouldn’t want to run around and explore rather than sit down and do homework?

We’ve gathered some of the best places where you can take the kids to learn and have fun at the same time as you bring the school curriculum to life. Whether they love science, history, drama or literature, make their schoolwork a reality and watch them learn as they explore their school subjects in a whole new light and all within easy reach of a train journey.

Don’t pay full fare! Buy your tickets now to get the best fares and save 1/3 off adult fares and 60% off kids fares when you use your Family & Friends Railcard. The best part is, you even get 2FOR1 when you go by train.
