Cheap train tickets from Macclesfield to London

Plan ahead and you can make big savings on your ticket price. Here's how:

  • The biggest saving comes if you book in advance. Compared to buying on the day of travel, you can save more than half the price, and it's cheaper the earlier you buy. Tickets become in advance, so set up a ticket alert for a reminder and you'll pay the absolute minimum.
  • Your Railcard is a great way to save a third or even half the price of your ticket if you travel off-peak. If you travel by train more than a few times a year, it works out as great value for money.
  • Finally, book directly through us to save even more. We don't charge a fee, and if you find your fare cheaper anywhere else, just let us know and we'll repay you the difference. Just use our app or buy through our website to save.
