Cheap Train Tickets to Aberdeen

Scotland can sometimes be overlooked as a location for a city break, particularly if it doesn’t involve Edinburgh or Glasgow. This could be considered as doing the country a disservice, as there are many places worth exploring outside the two major cities. One of these is Aberdeen, at the mouth of the River Dee on the eastern coast of Scotland. Roughly two-and-a-half hours from Edinburgh, and about 2h45m from Glasgow, Aberdeen is the third-largest city in Scotland, and can be a useful base if you wish to go further north into the Highlands. Additionally, booking cheap train tickets can make your journey to Aberdeen even more budget-friendly.

Given its location, Aberdeen may understandably be dismissed as being not easy to get to. This is, however, not true. There are frequent trains to Aberdeen from Glasgow and Edinburgh, and there are also some direct services to London and other parts of the country. It’s also worth noting that Caledonian Sleeper’s Highland service goes directly between London and Aberdeen, so this is an option which is well worth considering if you want to combine rail travel and overnight accommodation into one. If you’re coming from further afield, then Aberdeen Airport is worth considering, with a bus link to the nearby Dyce station which has direct services into Aberdeen itself. Finding cheap train tickets can further enhance the affordability of your journey to Aberdeen.

How to book Cheap Train Tickets to Aberdeen

Book Your Train Tickets Early

For the best deals on Cheap Train Tickets, don't delay until the day of departure. Instead, book an Advance Ticket up to 12 weeks ahead when released by the Train Operating Companies. Advance Tickets for trains to Aberdeen, offering lower prices, often sell out fast. We recommend booking your journey in advance, as early as possible, to secure the most affordable fares. Even if you need to book last minute, you can sometimes still purchase Advance Fares up to an hour before departure.

Use a Railcard

Pairing your journey with a railcard can slash up to a third off the ticket price, offering significant savings on cheap train tickets. If you're a regular train traveller, investing in a railcard will swiftly offset its cost through discounted fares.

Split Your Tickets

With Trainsplit’s unique journey planner, we search for the best-priced train tickets for your journey. You can easily discover the best split ticketing combinations that maximise your savings on train tickets, and best of all, Trainsplit will do all the work for you and doesn’t charge a booking fee.

Avoid Peak Times

Opting for off-peak travel not only saves money on higher-priced train tickets but also offers a more tranquil journey experience. Off-peak hours typically commence around 09:30, making them an ideal choice for budget-conscious travellers heading to Aberdeen. Additionally, considering splitting your tickets during off-peak hours can further enhance your savings on cheap train tickets for your journey.

Travelling with Multiple Passengers

Explore Groupsave train tickets for discounted fares when travelling with a group of three or more people. It's a great way to save on train tickets and make your journey more affordable. And remember, you can also consider splitting your tickets with Trainsplit to save even more on your train tickets. 

Consider an Alternative Route

If you're not starting your journey from London, why not try a different route that doesn't pass through the capital? Cross Country trains offer trips to Bristol Temple Meads that avoid London, providing a smart way to cut down on train travel costs. With Trainsplit’s journey planner, you can easily find cheaper routes to Aberdeen by splitting your tickets. This can save you money on your train tickets, ensuring you enjoy affordable travel to your destination.

Avoid Booking Fees

Many ticket retailers impose booking fees for each journey booked, adding unnecessary expenses to your travel costs. With Trainsplit, we don't charge a booking fee. Instead, we only charge a Share of Savings, which is a small percentage of the savings you made if we found a split for your journey. Rest assured, it will still work out cheaper than purchasing a through fare. If no splits are found, no Share of Savings will be charged.

What is there to do in Aberdeen, then? Read on and find out just a few things that the city and surrounding area have to offer.


Perhaps the most well-known sport in Aberdeen is football, with Aberdeen FC being the city’s biggest club. Based at Pittodrie Stadium to the north-east of the city centre, the club has played in the top flight of Scottish football since the 1905-06 season. They’ve won the league on four occasions, both Scottish cups a number of times, and even won two European trophies in the 1980s. The European trophies are of note due to being won under the managerial reign of Alex Ferguson, who went on to achieve great success with Manchester United following his appointment there in November 1986 until his retirement from football management in May 2013. In terms of other sports in Aberdeen, there are a number of golf courses, with one of them – Kings Links – located next door to Pittodrie Stadium. There are other sports with a presence in the city, including swimming, rugby union, and athletics.

For those who are interested in the history of Aberdeen, it’s worth visiting the Aberdeen Maritime Museum on Shiprow when it reopens in the spring of 2024 following refurbishment and maintenance works. Conveniently located a short distance from Aberdeen station and near to the harbour, the museum was established in 1984 and covers the city’s long & interesting relationship with the North Sea. The museum’s exhibits cover trading, fishing, shipbuilding, and more recent developments including the offshore energy industry. Some parts of the museum itself date back to the late 16th century, and there are several ship models, one of which dates back to 1689. Currently, there are virtual tours available online while the museum is closed, and you can find out about these – as well as further details on the museum – HERE. If you’re interested in military history, then the Gordon Highlanders Museum on Viewfield Road in the west of the city is well worth a look. The museum covers the history of the Gordon Highlanders line infantry regiment of the British Army, which existed from 1881 to 1994 when it merged with the Queen’s Own Highlanders (Seaforth and Camerons). Exhibits cover the Napoleonic Wars, actions in India, Afghanistan, and South Africa, through to both World Wars and the Cold War. There’s also a replica WW1 trench, and the museum also contains some volunteer-maintained gardens. For further information on the museum, please visit the website HERE.

There are of course other things to do in Aberdeen. For example, why not consider a walk in Union Terrace Gardens near the city centre or Duthie Park Gardens on the banks of the River Dee to the south of the Ferryhill district of the city?
