Britain has an extensive rail network that reaches all areas of England, Wales and Scotland.
It can prove expensive using the railway. However there are many types of tickets and railcards available. Usually if you book a seat at least a week in advance of travel the cost is considerably cheaper. Almost all cities and towns have their stations located in the centre of town so trains can be a convenient and comfortable way to explore the UK.
Travelling by coach is usually cheaper than by train. However, the journey time can be longer as coaches sometimes make many stops and time keeping can also be affected by congested roads. Like trains, coaches cover the entire country.
