Harry PatrickA modest journey of only around 100 miles can easily cost in excess of £100 for which you get the privilege of standing in an over crowded carriage full of stern faced commuters. Rail travel isn't a romantic pastime in the UK anymore. Instead it's a stressful (and disgracefully overpriced) experience.

Martha HortonI have taken the train from Preston south to Exeter. Fabulous scenery. Also just going from Paddington to Exeter is wonderful.

Glynis Bitzer FarrAs much as I love travelling via the train in both Europe and the U.K. I'm finding the prices to be so far outside the realm of the ordinary person that I will just continue to travel through books

Robin KorbI did this in 2012 and can't wait to do it again. Britain is a beautiful country by rail, by car and by walking.

Richard HorvathI walked across that bridge several times while I was in London. I spent a month in London and wandered all over the place. The first time I crossed that bridge I notice some stuff floating past under the bridge. Later that same day as I was coming back and crossing the bridge again I noticed some paper floating under the bridge again....but then it hit me, it was floating in the opposite direction from what I had seen earlier the same day. The river direction is controlled by the tide, it flows in both directions. For a while I thought I was going crazy until I learned about the river flow.

Laurie Pollock KastenMy most favorite city in the world! Just got my ancestry.com DNA test results back and found out I am 34% British...... and here I thought I was only Scandinavian my whole life, which came in a close 2nd at 31%! I KNEW there was a reason I felt a connection every time I go there and have this desire to return to my ancestors home land. <3
