I used my ticket visit to visit York, A place I loved to go to when I lived in England Value for money
- "Perfect for flexibilty" Deirdre c. 18/10/2016
Used the Britrail England Pass - easy to validate at St Pancras Station and then I used it to visit London,Dover, Salisbury (Stonehenge) and up to the Lake District. Could hop on any train without reservations at any time. For flexible times and used properly, a pass is a must and good value. Value for money Convenience
- "Britrail Pass" Michael j. 23/08/2014
A very economical way of using the English railway network and very convenient being able to board any train during the allocated day without having to buy a ticket in advance. Instructions regarding border crossing into Scotland were slightly confusing but buying a ticket Edinburgh to Carlisle for the Edinburgh to Manchester day trip was only a slight inconvenience. O verall a great system which I will use on my next UK visit. Value for money Convenience
- "UK Rail Trips 8 day consc pass" Robert m. 15/12/2013
Great pass for UK rail travel. Much more flexible for daily travel unlike point to point fares which in the UK are often punishing cost-wise unless you book well (very well) in advance or travel off-peak and loose virtually half the day waiting for the cheaper fare to surface for the outward trip. As a tourist your destinations can vary on a day or even an hourly basis and the ability to hop on and off without being stuck in a queue or wasting time at stations calculating how much this leg or that leg might cost is a real advantage of this pass. You need to spend your precious time working out the timetables and the platform arrangements. Trying to calculate UK rail fares is always a challenge - given the pea and thimble approach underlying the pricing ! Transport economists are much like children - they should be seen but not so often heard, especially by rail fare policymakers ! Only downside with this type of Pass is when you strike a ticket barrier that is not staffed (or infrequently staffed eg Haywards Heath) - can be a bit tricky extricating oneself to/from the paid area - which is not found on European stations as they have not adopted the (rather strange) UK philosophy of 'paid and unpaid' station areas. Problems aside the Pass is good value if you need to travel often during the period of validity. One final comment on booked seats - the Virgin trains are rather poor at showing which seats are booked and which are not - its hard to tell . Cheers Value for money Convenience

Trains where great but due ti station renovations at Nottingham there was no lift on platform 7 and we had to lug our heavy bags up 2 flights of stairs. Value for money Convenience
