Used Abellio Greater Anglia to travel from Cambridge to London Liverpool Street. The train was on time on both outbound and inbound journeys. Seats are very comfortable with full tables between facing seats.

Got a ranger ticket and visited Sandringham and Cromer by rail from Norwich. A fabulous ride on clean comfortable trains with an hourly service. Let the train do the work no driving or having to find car parks. Spot on.
