Travel from London by Train

The British Rail train network connects London to all the major cities, and most towns within the UK (and some European destinations); often, it's advisable to reserve your seat where possible. In addition, Eurostar trains go directly from London to Paris and Brussells via the Channel Tunnel.

There are nine major British Rail train stations in London, each serving different parts of the UK; therefore the station you travel from is determined by where you want to go, and so you need to know and get to the right train station in order to successfully make your journey.

The List of Cities section below, lists many of the major cities/towns and indicates which London train station serves that city or town as well as the approximate journey length in miles (and in km) and approximately how long the journey takes.

London Transport have a 'Stationlink' bus service which runs between the major London British Rail stations; in addition all the stations are part of the Underground train network, and so it is reasonably easy to travel from one station to another.

On the trains, there are many levels of service, from Economy Class to First Class travel, restaurant facilities and Sleeper carriages (which allows you to have a bed to rest in during your journey).
