Travel to other cities, Newcastle upon Tyne: 12 reviews and 11 photos
There are regular services from London, taking less than 3 hours.
The East Coast main Line (ECML) is the only route in the UK that can legitimately be called 'High speed'. Nowadays many of the trains use ex-eurostar stock from the Channel tunnel link (London-Paris)
Although not the most densely populated side of the UK it has long had the better transport links.
The world speed record (126mph) was made on these tracks, just north of Peterborough - and it still stands today.
The route passes through a number of fine cities, usually most noted for their cathedrals, such as Peterborough, York and Durham. A ticket that would allow you to stop off in these places would thus be a great idea.
Return fares, booked in advance can be had from as little as 20 pound, but normal fares are quite a bit higher.
