Not Travelling by Car Where Would You Go to on the Train ?

Ask a Question

Its easy to jump in the car and go on a roadtrip but 1 thing we love to do as a family is to go on the train and view our country . In more normal times and the world of different tiers that don't exist where would you go to on the train ?

I totally agree with you , much more pleasant to travel by train (in normal times !) . You can even have an alcoholic drink while watching the scenery go past .

In general if you live in the South of England or the Midlands a trip to Inverness via Glasgow and Perth (west coast line ) or to Aberdeen via Edinburgh on the east coast line give unmatched scenery.

Did them both many times when I was stationed in Morayshire ,although most of the time on the night sleeper .

There is still a fair amount of enjoyment to be had on train journeys once you get away from the daily commute on them (which I accept can be dire ! ).

We once took the night train from Euston to Inverness it was fantastic as when we woke up it was to breathtaking beautiful scenery.

I would also recommend the Heads of the Valley, South Wales, as again the scenery is stunning.

For longer UK journeys I prefer travelling by train. There is a nice scenic stretch of track going along the coast at Dawlish. I'd like to take a trip along the West Highland Line going over the Glenfinnan Viaduct (Harry Potter Bridge).

G0501 actually it’s not to bad it’s only 5& half hours I would have thought it’s much longer

I get free rail travel as I work for a TOC, my son loves a day just travelling around the network, up to London then down to the coast and around, a big circuit of the south

Obviously we haven't done that this year as its not essential although the cleanliness cant be faulted

I would do rail and sail, get the train to Ayr, then the bus to Stranraer and then the ferry to Belfast to visit family. Or I would get the train from Edinburgh to Inverness to visit family and friends.

I used to go from Stirling to Inverness on the train all the time when at Uni and used to go to from Stirling to Glasgow for uni by train too. Loved a train journey, you could just sit back, watch the scenery, listen to music, read a book, do uni work etc and not worry about anything other than getting off at the right stop.

When life goes back to normal? They just keep extending the lockdowns and curfews to make people feel normality will return.

They told us it was just two weeks, right?

I don't watch TV and life feels normal, but then if I want to go somewhere there's a curfew and lockdown I wasn't aware of. Kinda hard not to know, anyway, since everyone talks about it.

Some are aware although not certain what it implies the restrictions. stuartsmith544

I'd go to Andorra, but you'd have a hard time travelling around without a car.
