Arrange the ultimate Mother’s Day out With Railcard

We’ve collated our favourite 2FOR1 deals when you travel by train, to help you arrange the ultimate Mother’s Day out for less. You’ll save even more when using your Railcard, so start planning a great day out with the person who plays the maternal role in your life. No one said they had to be older than you.


For the mum who just wants a nice day out with the kids

At SEA LIFE you’ll see penguins, fish, turtles and even the great predator of the seas the shark! SEA LIFE is one of Europe’s best experiences (in our humble opinion) as it entertains the kids and delights the adults.


We have 2FOR1 entry at SEA LIFE. Pick your location, download your voucher, travel by train and enjoy:

For the mum who likes to eat (or just doesn’t want a dirty kitchen)

Use Mother’s Day as an excuse to treat her. She doesn’t have to know you’re getting the meal 2FOR1 (or if thier like my mum, they would enjoy it more). You can get lots of different 2FOR1 food offers here. However, our top pick is Shaka Zulu, a cool South African restaurant located in Camden Stable Markets. While their steak and seafood are amazing, your mum can get a little more adventurous and try out the Zebra, Springbok or Crocodile.

For the mum who loves chocolate

Confessions of a Chocoholic Afternoon Tea not only serves a gorgeous arrangement of sandwiches, its sweeter choices all have something in common – they’re made with chocolate, or go well with chocolate. There isn’t much more to say, expect your Mum is going to love it.


Closest Station: London Victoria

For the mum who likes a bit of adventure (but not too much)

A day out in London is always a great idea. If you want to avoid the crowds then a trip on City Cruises’ 24hour Hop-on hop-off pass is the perfect solution. Not only is the boat modern and built for all weather, you’ll be able to tick off all the sights along the way with no crowds blocking your view! Plus, any trip is a good one if you can recreate Jack and Rose on the Titanic.


Closest station: London Waterloo

For the mum who is a film buff

A lot of the time, mums just want to spend Mother’s Day with the people they love. A great way to get everyone together is to watch a film. Make it an experience that nobody will ever forget by going to the “oldest working cinema” in the UK, Electric Cinema Birmingham. With a mix of mainstream, independent, foreign and classic films it will be easy to choose a film Mum would love, plus you can get waiter service if you want to make it super fancy.


Closest Station: Birmingham New Street

All Mums are different so whether you’re the one dropping hints, planning on behalf of someone else or just using the day as an excuse meet up with people you love, there is something for everyone. The best thing is, when you travel by train not only are you saving 1/3 on fares, with your Railcard, you also get access to over 250 2FOR1 offers.

Here you can also update your details and report a Railcard lost/stolen.

Don't forget you must have your Railcard with you when buying tickets and travelling.
