Northern has put four pop-up markets, including events in Beverley and Scarborough, on its ‘Christmas List’ with a special £2 advance ticket to encourage more people to visit.

The train operator has singled out Scarborough Sparkle and the ‘Made in East Yorkshire Markets as alternatives to the well-established city centre markets on offer across the north of England.

The special £2 tickets, which are available to children for just £1, will be available in each direction on:

Services between Hull and Scarborough from Friday 24th – Sunday 26th November in support of Scarborough Sparkle

Services between Selby and Beverley from Wednesday 6th – Friday 8th December in support of the Beverley Festival of Christmas ‘Made in East Yorkshire Markets’

The £2 tickets are only available on Northern services and must be bought three days in advance of travel from the Northern website or app.

For anyone unable to buy their tickets online, they can do so via telephone on 0344 811 5111. For more information, visit:

Mark Powles, commercial and customer director at Northern, said: “We know some of the big cities across our network can get pretty crowded this time of year, so we wanted to do something to encourage people to try an alternative location instead.

“Christmas markets make a huge contribution to the winter economy of local towns and we hope these special £2 tickets encourage more people to ‘go do their thing’ in Scarborough, Knaresborough, Beverley and Ilkley.”

On Sunday 10th December, rail timetables across the north of England will change in line with the rest of the National Rail network.

Customers are encouraged to use the ‘Check My Timetable’ feature on the Northern website for more information about their local station.
