Rail Europe Offers 20% Off British Train Tickets, Explore more of Great Britain at Great Fares

WWHITE PLAINS, N.Y., February 11, 2014 - Rail Europe Inc., the largest distributor of European rail products in North America, is offering 20% off British Train Tickets, making train travel throughout England, Scotland, and Wales more affordable and convenient than ever. Now through March 25, 2014, travelers can take advantage of the 20% off British Train Tickets Promo with 20BRITISH coupon code when booking British train tickets.*

The British rail network provides easy access to Great Britain’s bustling capital cities, with convenient, frequent departures and comfortable trains between all of England’s main cities. Manchester, for example, boasts a fascinating heritage from the Industrial Revolution age and has undergone quite a transformation in recent years and is now a dynamic destination with a center for the arts, media, higher education and home to a football club with fans worldwide. Nearby, the active bunch can take in the panoramas across the dales and moors in the Peak District National Park, or explore canals, secret caves, natural springs and woodlands.

Great Britain’s extensive rail network also allows for an easy and affordable day trip from London to the northern counties of Cheshire, Derbyshire and Yorkshire. Among England’s most charming, these destinations feature a wealth of impressive manor houses, a plethora of restaurants and hotels fit for gentry, as well as country pursuits and striking landscapes worthy of any period drama backdrop. From exclusive abbeys to royal homes, many of these historical behemoths can be seen on big screens and little screens as fictional homes to Hollywood royalty.

Prices begin at $25 USD/$27 CAD** for a train ticket between London and Manchester. Bookings can be made by visiting Rail Europe’s website at raileurope.com or by calling Rail Europe’s contact center.
