Part of Northern’s #GoDoYourThing campaign, the advance purchase tickets will be valid for travel between September 6 and October 22. The last time Northern had a flash sale, tickets sold out in 72 hours, so Britons who wish to travel for £1 should be quick.
The train operator is offering over a million tickets for £1, with children travelling half price, meaning it is 50p for children aged five to 15.
The tickets are available online and on the Northern’s app.
Northern Railway covers all the north of the country.
And the operator has more than 540 northern destinations to choose from.

Selected routes around the Northern network will be on offer.
The #GoDoYourThing campaign’s goal is to help people get back to doing what they love the most.
Britons wishing to explore the North of the country for a fraction of the usual price should take advantage of the flash sale, which will only last until all tickets have been sold.
Destinations such as Leeds, Newcastle or the Peak District are included in the sale.
Britons can use the rail network to go to a wide range of destinations.
Cities such as Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield or Nottingham are covered by Northern.
Travellers who wish to explore the great British outdoors can get the train to the Peak District or Cumbria and the Lake District.
Beachgoers can head to the Yorkshire Coast or Blackpool.
Mark Powles, Northern’s customer and commercial director, has commented on the motivation of the railway operator to put on a flash sale.
He said: “The past 18 months have been tough for all and, as things begin to return to normal, we wanted to give our customers the chance to explore all the North has to offer for the best possible value.
“It also gives our customers the chance to see, first-hand, the palpable improvements we’ve made while they’ve been away.
“Our trains, stations and ticket buying options have never been better and, together with our staff, we are ready to help people across the North to ‘Go Do Your Thing’.”
To book their £1 tickets, Britons do not need a special code.
All they have to do is select their preferred journey on one of the advance purchase routes and if available, the flash sale price will be automatically applied.
