Overview

Four nations as one, the United Kingdom is a land with strong local identities and long histories from Roman settlements to northern industrial heartlands.

The National Rail is the generic term used by the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) to denote the passenger services in United Kingdom. Train tickets for trains operating in the UK can be booked in advance. International trains connect the UK with neighbouring countries such as France and Belgium. Book tickets to visit main cities of the United Kingdom by train. Cities including London, Oxford and Bath are all served by trains.

Cityscape

Edinburgh, London, Cardiff – of course they’re worth a visit but get off the beaten track. Try Sheffield for its close-knit city mood, excellent shopping and rich history; Bath for the culture and architecture; Newport for the Ryder Cup and fascinating buildings and Dundee for its lively, cosmopolitan centre.

Landscape

The United Kingdom can be anything you want it to be, for sandy beaches take a First Great Western train to Cornwall and Devon. For treks amongst greenery try the East Coast Rail service to the Scottish Highlands or in England the Northern Rail service to the Peak District. And if it’s a landscape of shops you’re after the multitude of cities, all served by trains, are sure to satisfy.

Take Home

The cities and the seaside are full of trinket souvenirs to please those left behind. Welsh Cashmere jumpers and Scottish kilts are also a great way to remember your trip.

Food & Drink

Fish and chips in a seaside town are a must, as is a Sunday roast in a traditional English pub. In Scotland make sure you try the haggis and in Wales visit the many gastronomic delights both in the much-hyped restaurants of the cities and in the tucked away cafes of the small villages. And with thousands of pubs throughout the UK, your whistle will never be dry.

New Perspective

Take a First ScotRail train to Wick near John O’Groats. It’s the furthest point in the UK and the starting/finishing point for those (peculiar folk!) wishing to walk the breadth of the country.

    Bristol to paddington direct |
    "This has historically been a painless journey and this one was no different. Continues to be a pretty punctual route, with just about enough seats to accommodate demand. Only concern would be if you were joining after Bristol, seat reservations weren't marked and it wasn't clear that the operator was honoring them at all. As the service starts in Bristol that was not an issue for me. "

    London to Edinbrugh Express |
    "The trip was fast and comfortable. The workers on the train were polite and nice. The only issue was the fact that there were only a couple of times that the cart came and it was kinda expensive. Overall it was a quick ride and a pleasant one. "

    great journey |
    "we are really enjoying traveling with Virgin train, the service is excellent but unfortunately on the way back to London we missed the train and we can not utilize the tickets for the next schedule and we have to buy new ones only for lower class with special rate - being helped by the ticketing officer "

  • Carlisle to Euston |
    "Good trip, train was on time and good value for money. Easy to book and print tickets at station. Used to Swiss trains that are more spacious than the British ones, but no complaints. "
