Virgin Trains have announced that they are cutting the prices of their Carlisle to Glasgow route over the Christmas period.

An off-peak return fair will now cost £16, a 30% discount off the price of a standard off-peak day return to the Scottish city.

First class off-peak tickets will now be £36.

The 'shopper' tickets are available at train stations after 9am from 9 December to 12 January.
