Whether sipping delicious mulled wine at the Birmingham Christmas market, ice skating outside the iconic Natural History Museum in London, enjoying the magical Manchester panto Dick Whittington or celebrating with loved ones, Virgin Trains customers will see their money travel further without compromising on style and comfort beyond the festive period and into mid-January.

Customers can travel between Monday, December 18 to Sunday, January 14, 2018 and even treat themselves to a first class experience.

  • London to Chester Standard Class: originally £23, now £11

Executive director commercial for Virgin Trains on the West Coast Sarah Copley said: “Virgin Trains is about connecting with friends and family, and that’s at the heart of what we do. With our seat sale this winter, our customers can easily make those important journeys and maybe even treat themselves with a First Class experience.

"We get you there quicker than the car, and with our industry firsts - such as mobile ticketing, automatic compensation for delays and our free on-demand entertainment app beam – your journey should be smoother and more enjoyable too. With 250,000 discounted First Class and Standard tickets, our passengers can look forward to their journeys even more this winter.”
