‘Book now’ plea as EMR offers advanced tickets to Skegness from Notts for ‘for less than price of full English Breakfast’


East Midlands Railway (EMR) is urging its customers from Nottingham to book in advance and secure a cheap fare to the seaside this summer.

EMR has released 6,900 Advance Single tickets priced at £7.70 and 3,450 Advance Return tickets priced at £15.40 – all for trips from Nottingham to Skegness.

That means customers can get to the Lincolnshire seaside resort for less than the cost of a Full English Breakfast at Wetherspoons or the average cost of fish and chips*.

There is more good news for families on a budget as Butlin’s Skegness has a number of special offers for early summer breaks that mean EMR customers can spend a few days away without going over-budget.

Butlin’s, the Home of Entertainment, offers fantastic value for families looking for a summer holiday. With early summer breaks starting from £89**, there’s so much included in the price. Alongside accommodation everyone visiting Butlin’s has access to the pool, unlimited fairground rides, live shows and headline acts, soft play and the incredible SKYPARK playground.

“Book in advance and enjoy a few days with a wallet-friendly escape to Skegness with EMR’s Advance Single tickets at £7.70 and Advance Return tickets at £15.40.

“Spend less than you would on breakfast or a takeaway, and make memories by the sea.”
