TrainTripper, is our innovative platform that aims to promote car-free leisure trips in and around Gloucestershire, integrating transport information, promoting local businesses and highlighting some of the incredible local attractions Gloucestershire has to offer. With train travel at the heart of the platform, you can build a personalised itinerary of places to explore, eat and stay using sustainable transport, where possible to reach your chosen destinations.
TrainTripper encourages you to leave the car at home and consider the train journey as part of your experience, whether you are planning a day out with the kids, a short getaway or a longer break in Gloucestershire. The website has received funding from train operators Great Western Railway and Cross Country Trains who operate train services across the county and beyond. TrainTripper has been developed in partnership with Visit Gloucestershire as part of their sustainability and Climate Action agenda.
Steve Gardner-Collins, Director of Visit Gloucestershire said about the launch:
“I’m thrilled to see the launch of such an innovative and fun platform to drive tourism in Gloucestershire. The list of carefully curated places to eat, stay and explore make it really easy for users to find great places to visit, and support local businesses at the same time. By promoting travel by train, the platform and our work with GCRP supports Gloucestershire’s aspirations to reduce carbon emissions and be net zero by 2045”.
