London is Britain’s most important rail hub, making it your UK launching pad for train trips to destinations near and far. Day trips, multi-day tours, guided trips and independent touring – there are London rail tours to suit every holiday schedule.

Take a Fab Four day trip by train to Liverpool, for an independent tour of the city made famous by the Beatles. Sights include the Beatles Story, Cavern Quarter clubs, Albert Dock and the two-hour Magical Mystery Tour of Beatle-related sites.

York is another easy day trip destination from London by train. A classic walled city of castles, keeps and cathedrals, York has Viking archaeology, medieval laneways, Georgian houses and a Gothic Minster. The tour includes standard or first-class rail travel, plus a guided sightseeing bus tour.

Edinburgh is best combined with an overnight stay or three-day tour of the Highlands. Multi-day tours include plenty of time to explore Edinburgh’s medieval city center plus visits to legendary Loch Ness, the atmospheric Great Glen and Inverness, capital of the Highlands.
If international destinations beckon, you can train it to Dublin from London and choose a three, four or five-day exploration of Ireland, with train travel and Dublin accommodation all sorted.

Paris is so close by Eurostar – just a couple of hours – so don’t miss the chance to visit the City of Light from the City of London. You can do it in a day with speedy Eurostar train tickets, the choice of independent or guided touring, and even a Champagne lunch atop the Eiffel Tower.

Stay overnight in Paris on a two-day rail trip, or take the Eurostar to Brussels to spend the day enjoying Belgian beer and chocolates in the Flemish capital.
