Trains to the UK
Travel to the UK from just €39 one way*
United Kingdom is best known as the land of tea, fish and chips, not so great weather and of course the Royals.
But in spite of the rain the UK is also a real mix of charm, culture and excitement: From the lake District with its breathtaking views, the historical churches, abbeys and cathedrals dotted around the country, to perhaps the most vibrant and cosmopolitan city in Europe, London.
The United Kingdom has a long history of cultural creativity and has produced some of the most famous writers in the world such as William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Jane Austen. British music has also had a huge influence on the world especially in pop and rock thanks to the ubiquitous Beatles and the unique sound of The Rolling Stones.
Sport takes a special place in the heart of the Brits. Cricket and rugby matches are weekly occurrences while the very famous Soccer Premier League attracts fans from all over the world.
London boasts a wide variety of museums and galleries with the British museum a must-see. If you prefer something somewhat more cutting edge you must pay a visit to the Tate Modern.
Not all the action takes place in the capital and places such as Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester are just as vibrant as the capital city.
With so much to do and more trains than ever, there's never been a better time to explore the UK by rail.
