London is Britain’s most important rail hub, making it a great base from which to explore destinations near and far. From the shores of Lake Windermere to UNESCO–listed Edinburgh, here are a few locations within reach of London by rail.

Paris — 2.5 hours from London

Liverpool — 2.5 hours from London
Take a Fab Four day trip by train to Liverpool and enjoy a tour of the city made famous by the Beatles.

Home to Lake Windermere, Hawkshead, and Tarn Hows, the Lake District National Park boasts some of Britain’s most captivatingly beautiful countryside. Delve into the idyllic Yewdale Valley; follow in the footsteps of author Beatrix Potter; and don’t forget to sample a traditional English cream tea, a must for any visitor to the lakes.

Edinburgh — 5 hours from London
Scotland’s capital, the UNESCO–listed city of Edinburgh offers dramatic scenery alongside centuries of colorful history. Take in the sights with ease on a hop-on hop-off bus tour, stroll along the historic Royal Mile, or sip a wee dram at the Scotch Whisky Experience.
