Railway Stations United Kingdom

All major UK cities offer visitors a diverse range of accommodation, particularly in the centre of town. Many people choose bed and breakfast hotels – they’re cheap and friendly and they are suitable for a backpacker, families, singles, business visitors or couples.

Try to find a b&b close to the train or coach station if you don’t know the city well. Taxis and buses are readily available at railway terminals but if you choose hotels midway between the city center and the train station you’ll spend less time travelling from A to B and more time enjoying your stay in the city.

Save on Accommodation

indoor arenaIf you’re planning a break in London, you’ll have lots of choice as all of the city’s stations are close to bed and breakfast accommodation, chain hotels, boutique hotels and luxury hotels. Perhaps you’re arriving at Kings Cross Station from Scotland or the North or taking the Eurostar service from Paris to St. Pancras. The stations are next to each other and conveniently located for West End luxury accommodation or cheap hotels in the Kings Cross, Islington and Camden areas.

Paddington Station, Victoria Station and Waterloo Station are all in districts that are noted for having a diverse selection of hotels for you to choose from too.

If you’re arriving by train at Birmingham New Street station, the hotels and boutique residences of the Jewellery Quarter or cheap b&b accommodation near the Custard Factory can be reached by taxi in just a few minutes. It’s worth bearing in mind that while Glasgow Central Station, Edinburgh Waverly, and Liverpool Lime Street are near lots of cheap hotels, they’re also close to good public transport links.

If you’re confident using public transportation, a local bus or coach is a cheap way to reach your b&b once you get off the train.
