Since the country’s first steam railway opened up in 1825, England has become a champion of rail travel, with a vast network of tracks running the length and breadth of the country. Today, high speed, comfortable trains run from London to destinations in every corner of the UK, as well as the cross-channel Eurostar running to locations in France and Belgium.

Railway tours are also a popular way to explore the country and there are a number of renowned routes. From London, tours of the idyllic Cotswolds are a popular choice, where cobbled alleyways, timber-fronted cottages and flower-filled country gardens line the route to famous cities like Oxford, Bath and Shakespeare’s hometown Stratford-Upon-Avon.
