Tips for your trip

As with all great days out planning is really important. Make sure you have researched the trail, train times and pubs before you leave

Planning a fun day out

There are few things you need to ensure when planning a rail ale trail trip. The better you plan the more fun your day will be.

Here are a few things to consider:

  1. You must match the train times with the pub opening hours, to avoid being ‘stranded’ at a station until the next train.
  2. Outside each station is an information board giving details on the local area. There is also a map which will show the location of the pubs you are visiting.

Staying safe during your trip

So you have planned your trip, everyone is excited and your fingers are crossed for good weather!

Please remember however that trains and train stations have the potential to be dangerous places. Please be sure to always:

  • Be considerate to other rail users
  • Follow all Network Rail safety precautions
