Virgin Trains Commercial Director Suzanne Donnelly said:

We’re committed to supporting Harrogate Christmas Market and we’re confident these additional services, and fantastic value fares, will prove very popular.

Promoting travel to the market is one of a number of initiatives we’re looking at as part of our commitment to supporting the town’s tourist industry, economy and community ahead of our planned introduction of a two-hourly service between Harrogate and London from 2019.

Brian Dunsby, who leads the market’s organising committee, said:

We’re very pleased to have the support of Virgin Trains and, with just four weeks to go before we open our Christmas market, we hope this new release of low priced fares will persuade many people from across Virgin’s east coast route to travel to Harrogate to see what the town has to offer.

Virgin Trains is already to substantially increase the number of direct services between London and Harrogate over the next few years, and these special one-off services are further recognition of the demand for easy access to Harrogate from the capital.
