Transportation in England
After you’ve sorted your airfare to England and figured out where to stay in England, the next question is to figure out how you’ll get around the country. It’s not a big country, so even getting between the north of England to the southern coast isn’t going to take as long as you might expect. Not only that, you’ve got several good options for getting around.
Train Travel in England
England is part of Europe, and traveling by train in Europe is the best way to go – right? Not exactly. England has its own quirks in the transportation world, and while its rail network serves the country extremely efficiently it’s far more expensive than rail travel is in many other countries. In other words, taking the train around England is fast and easy, but it’s not cheap.

Renting a Car in England
Most everyone knows that in the UK they drive on the “other” side of the road, and some visitors are understandably intimidated by that. You certainly don’t have to rent a car to get around England – between the trains and buses you can easily get just about anywhere without needing to drive. Still, there are some places that you’ll need a car in order to reach – and once you get used to driving on the left side of the road you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about.
