Train Travel in Pictures

If you're wondering how to get around for cheap, make sure to get a 16-25 Discount Railcard when you get here! The train is a super easy way to get around for a cheap price. At first, it may seem intimidating, but after you do it once, you realize how easy and efficient it actually is! The rail employees and station staff are more than willing to answer questions and point you in the right direction. It is an extremely popular way to travel here in the UK, as it saves you from more expensive flights. Once you get the hang of the system, it is the simplest way to travel.

If you take the train to London, an extremely easy way to get around London is by using the London Underground Subway. All day passes cost about 8 pounds. They are very efficient, easy, and FAST! There are loads of signs to point you in the right direction if you are having any issues. The underground trains run about every 5 minutes or less, so it is an extremely reliable way to get around London as well!

In October and November, make sure to watch for the "Great Escape" deal, where you can go anywhere that the London Midland Service trains go for only 10 pounds!
