Don’t rush off, join our after-work get togethers.
Top tips, advice, technical know-how, photo ideas… and a glass of something cheery. Our series of informal chats are tailored to fit in with your busy lives. Travel Geeks: Rush Hour is just an hour long, and offers you the chance to hear from our experts, share a drink and join in the lively debate.
In this event, our expert panel will discuss all things rail-related and offer tips on the most worthwhile trips, while sharing their most memorable train experiences. The talk will inspire you to give flying a miss the next time you go away and to start planning your very own railway adventure.
