Overview

Imagine having unlimited rail travel in England, Scotland and Wales with nothing to rush you but your own anticipation for what lies ahead. The BritRail Consecutive or Flexi pass from Rail Europe lets you see more of Great Britain with all the graciousness the region is known for. No rushing from one place to the other when you have your choice of how many days you’d like to putter around (the consecutive pass), or a large block of time in which to do it (the flexipass).

And speaking of putter, there are world famous golf courses everywhere. Not to mention imposing castles, English monuments, and British history at every turn. What better way to visit the Loch Ness monster ? If he doesn’t have a tight schedule, why would you ? Lastly, train travel with Rail Europe lets you conquer medieval territory in the most genuine way. With an army. Of experts.
