BRIGHTON is the most popular summer seaside destination for railcard holders, according to research.

The city was the most visited beach resort by passengers travelling on discounted fares in July and August last year, train operator representative the Rail Delivery Group said.

Blackpool was the second most popular location with Bournemouth, Skegness and Colwyn Bay also in the top 10.

Four million railcard customers - such as people under 25, over 60 or travelling in a pair - made more than 130 million journeys last year, saving up to a third off most fares.

Train ticket prices rose by an average of 2.3 per cent across Britain in January.
