Getting around Britain

Scotland Viaduct

With so many transport connections, it is very easy to get out of London and spend some time in the UK’s other cities or its beautiful countryside.

BritRail for Britain

BritRail Passes are exclusively available to overseas visitors and must be purchased in advance as they are not available once you’re in the UK. Whatever your plans and wherever you want to go, there’s a BritRail Pass to suit you.

If you’re making multiple journeys by rail and traveling long-distance around Britain, a BritRail GB Pass offers great value for money and huge savings compared to normal ticket prices. The BritRail Consecutive Pass is perfect if you’ve get set days you want to travel, while the BritRail Flexi Pass offers greater flexibility. Exclusively available to non-UK residents, the BritRail passes cover a huge area and are an essential purchase for any visitor wanting to explore Britain by rail.

BritRail for London and southern England

For visitors to London who want to travel outside the city but stay in the south east, the London Plus Pass really is a dream ticket. Travelling on two or four days in an eight day period, or seven days out of fifteen, the pass offers travel to great cities and coastal towns  such as Oxford, Brighton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and Stratford-upon-Avon, all on a single ticket. The pass also includes return airport transfers for Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted airports on the Express train services.

BritRail for Scotland

If Scotland is your destination of choice after you leave London, BritRail also offers passes specifically for use north of the border. The BritRail Scottish Freedom Pass not only includes access to rail travel across the whole of mainland Scotland, but also ferry travel to many of the northern islands. If you want to discover the wildness of Scotland’s countryside, play the spectacular golf courses, spot the mysterious Loch Ness Monster and admire the wildlife on Scotland’s untamed islands, the BritRail Scottish Freedom Pass will be indispensable.

To see a distinctly more urban side of Scotland, the BritRail Central Scotland Pass provides ticket holders with unlimited travel between the some of the biggest cities in Scotland and surrounding towns, including the capital Edinburgh, Glasgow, North Berwick, Kirkcaldy, Dunblane and all stations in-between.
