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
Thanks to the speedy Eurostar rail service, Paris lies within easy reach of London and makes a wonderful day trip from the British capital. Explore in comfort on a hop-on hop-off bus tour; take to the waves on a scenic Seine River cruise; and discover top Paris attractions such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, and Notre Dame Cathedral.

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. Explore historic Albert Dock, hop aboard a Magical Mystery coach tour of locations including Penny Lane and the Cavern Club, and discover top attractions such as Tate Liverpool and Merseyside Maritime Museum.

Lake District — 3 hours from London
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.
