"UK Rail Travel" United Kingdom Transportation Tip by Wowmoment

United Kingdom Transportation: 267 reviews and 190 photos

Travel by rail in the UK can be very expensive but there are bargains and offers to be had. The system is rather complex and hard to understand, even for those of us who live here!

This is the place to start

Have some specifics in mind eg date, destination. But I have found that being flexible with times can save money.

Britain is not a dangerous place, so arriving early or late is not a problem. Just check out that transport from the station will be available at your arrival time.

June 2008 - there are a lot of closures on the rail network due to maintenance work, well worth checking before you travel.

Type: Train

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
