Take Thameslink to Herts Bigger Weekend 2021
We are proud to be the Official Travel Partner of Herts Bigger Weekend 2021, organised by Visit Herts. This event showcases the best of the county’s wonderful and wide-ranging attractions from 25 September to 25 October 2021. One of the most convenient and sustainable ways to get to and around Hertfordshire is by train, so take Thameslink to explore the best of this beautiful county.
Experiences on offer this year include visits to Knebworth House and St Albans Cathedral, fun on the farm at Standalone Farm in Letchworth and Willows Activity Farm, plus relaxing afternoon teas for two.
Hertfordshire residents can enter the ballot for tickets from 16 August, but if you’re not a Hertfordshire resident, and see something that catches your eye, there’s no reason to let that stop you visiting one of the many attractions involved.
Full details can be found on the Visit Herts Bigger Weekend site.
Getting to Hertfordshire
Save yourself the hassle of driving and parking and get the train to and around Hertfordshire for the Big Weekend. Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern all service the county, from St Albans to Hatfield to Hemel Hempstead, and many of the attractions are within walking distance of railway stations.
Looking to save money on the train fare? There are several ways to cut the cost of your train ticket to enjoy Hertfordshire days out for less. For instance, travel at Off-Peak or Super Off-Peak times to enjoy up to 1/3 off adult fares, and up to four kids can travel for just £2. Or, why not see if you’re eligible for a Railcard, and take advantage of discounted fares. Those wanting to make a day of it with a group of friends, travel outside busy periods in a group of 3-9 adults to obtain a 1/3 off with GroupSave.
