KIDS will be allowed to travel free on Northern Rail trains this half term.

Youngsters under the age of 15 go free between Sunday, February 17, and Sunday, March 3, when travelling with a paying adult.

The offer is available on selected off-peak tickets booked online or via the Northern Rail app.

Commercial and customer director Mark Powles said: “For the February half term, children aged between five and 15 can travel for free if they travel with an adult.

“Of course, kids under five always travel free on our trains.

“It’s a great discount and gives our customers even more opportunities to discover everything the north of England has to offer.”

Entertainment including circus performers and face painting will also be on offers at stations during the half term.

Customers should use the promotional code KIDS in order to obtain the free tickets.
