Margate has been listed as one of the top 10 places to visit in the world by Rough Guides and with Southeastern offering special £10 return fares from London, there’s no better time to jump on a train and see what Margate has to offer.
Southeastern spokeswoman, Alison Nolan, said: “Margate is back on the map – and Southeastern will take you there for only £10 on weekends.
“The £10 tickets can be used on all our services, including our high speed Javelin train, so you could get from London to Margate in just 90 minutes. There’s no better time to go! You can purchase these tickets online from Southeastern until the end of February.”
Southeastern’s £10 ‘Portas Pilot’ ticket is valid for return travel every weekend - and is only available to buy online from southeasternrailway.co.uk/portaspilot.
The special deal is in support of the Portas Pilot initiative for Margate led by retail and marketing expert, Mary Portas. 500 ‘Portas Pilot’ tickets are available every weekend until 24 February 2013 and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. The ticket is less than a third of a regular off-peak adult day return from London to Margate - normally £31.10.
