England is at the center of the British rail network, with London as its hub. Very frequent service, combined with relatively high-speed travel, makes it an easy country to roam. And, since reservations are not required on British trains, you can board any train as long as you have a valid train ticket or rail pass. There are also many BritRail Pass options to choose from if you're planning to travel throughout England. England’s main cities (London, Manchester, Birmingham) are well connected to each other, and to sister cities in Scotland (Edinburgh, Glasgow) and Wales (Cardiff, Chester).
Most definitely consider the rails if you’re planning some day trips out of London to mysterious Stonehedge, Stratford-upon-Avon, or Bath. Even day trips to Paris are possible with the 186 mph Eurostar through Kent that whisks you to the Channel and then Paris in just over two hours. Easy-to-navigate Brussels and Lille (a confectionary joie de vivre with France’s oldest patisserie) are even closer and great day trip destinations as well.
Need to burn some calories? A longer but beautiful ride from London takes you to the glorious mountainous Lake District in Northern England, and home to an outstanding National Park. Spend a few days walking, climbing, road cycling, or kayaking. Exhausted? It also has some haunted castles where you can sleep. (Or not.)
Since Eurostar moved to Saint Pancras International station in 2007, Paris has became much more accessible from English cities north of London, since there’s no need to change stations in London. This combined with the new hi-speed line between London and the Channel Tunnel has dramatically reduced travel times between cities like Birmingham or Manchester and Paris or Brussels.
Good to know: London’s Saint Pancras, King’s Cross, and Euston stations are all within walking distance of each another. So there’s no need to worry about making that connection. It’s literally just right across the street, or around the block.cute dragon dragon 5e dragon age wiki dragon ball af dragon ball characters dragon ball characters dragon ball evolution dragon ball fusion generator dragon ball rule 34 dragon ball wallpaper 4k dragon ball z cards dragon blood tree dragon center dragon fruit in spanish dragon fruit smoothie dragon game dragon hunting dragon lizard dragon queen dragon wallpaper drunken dragon drunken dragon dutch angel dragon g dragon and jennie golden dragon chinese food green dragon 5e happy dragon menu hiccup how to train your dragon how to cut a dragon fruit how to train your dragon dragon names japanese dragon tattoo lego dragon piff the magic dragon rainbow dragon rava and the last dragon raya and the last dragon red dragon japanese maple smaug the dragon starbucks dragon drink steel dragon osrs toothless dragon batman soul of the dragon bearded dragon care bearded dragon lizard bearded dragon morphs bronze dragon celestial dragon one piece comodo dragon dragon adventures codes dragon age keep dragon age: origins dragon avatar dragon ball heros dragon ball online dragon ball piccolo dragon ball power levels dragon ball tv series dragon ball wallpapers dragon ball z hoodie dragon ball z tattoo dragon ball z: broly – the legendary super saiyan dragon blade dragon center dragon china dragon fruit cactus dragon gif dragon king dragon maid characters dragon maid season 2
