GREAT Trains. GREAT experiences. GREAT Britain.
While Britain may be known for its iconic double-decker buses, it’s British trains that are truly everywhere. Travel from London to quaint York in under two hours on the East Coast line. Or, trade your Edinburgh kilt for London’s swag just as effortlessly. Tuckered out from too many royal appearances? How about making a London to Bath trek on British rail to indulge in England’s spa central?
If you prefer sweet serenity, the scenic British rail lines of the north (such as northern England’s Settle Line, and the East and West Highlands Lines to Scotland’s Kyle of Lochalsh and Mallaig) open up worlds largely off-the-grid any other way.
In addition to their great abundance, trains in Britain have great conveniences. England train tickets offer first and standard class options, so finding your ideal situation is easy. You can direct connect to the rail system from the airports, as well as make convenient ship connections to Dun Laoghaire (“Dublin’s Riviera”) just steps away from the Holyhead rail station. And don’t forget to be one of the billion people a year that experience the Tube, London’s Underground, the world’s oldest and longest underground railway system.
So whether your day includes championship pint-lifting in a Dublin pub, photographing Buckingham Palace, or golfing at one of Scotland’s incredibly beautiful courses, it’s UK trains. They’re where the journey begins and the memories never end.
