Fares are also available at ticket offices, on the train and from the National Rail Enquiries website.  Some employers offer a discount on annual rail tickets, so make sure you ask yours.

Relaxing on the train can make your journey more enjoyable and helps to protect Wiltshire’s countryside and reduce noise and pollution in our town centres. You can browse the internet, read a paper or eat your breakfast on the way to work. Or why not fit in some exercise by cycling or walking to the station.
