Looking to book a day trip to beat the winter blues? Great Western Railway has launched its January sale for journeys across the country. 

The cheapest tickets start from £5 for journeys from London Paddington to Oxford – just 8p per mile. The list of discounted journeys also includes connections from London Paddington to Cardiff, Bristol, Exeter or Penzance.

RECOMMENDED: Northern Rail has released one million 50p tickets in a flash sale

If you fancy a slightly more luxurious journey, first class fares are also on sale, including £40 tickets from London Paddington to Bath Spa.

Travellers have one week to take full advantage of the lower prices and can book for journeys up to Sunday March 26. You can find out more and book tickets here.
