London Trains

Arriving by train in London has plenty of advantages. Firstly, trains will drop visitors off in central locations, many just a short walk from major attractions and city center accommodation. There's no need to spend money and time on airport transfers, and generally, travelers have much more choice about scheduling their journeys.

Rail journey times for domestic train services to London are often faster than flights, while the run from Paris or Brussels is comparable to flying (and allows visitors from across the Atlantic to work in some memorable city stays). Moreover, when travelers book ahead, they can often secure very affordable ticket prices - so it's a great travel option on many levels.

No other European city can boast a dozen main-line termini with such a striking variety of styles. Among London’s finest train stations are Paddington, Marylebone and St Pancras.


Train Companies Serving London

Trains offering services into London include Southern, South Western Railway, Southeastern, Virgin Trains, London Northwestern, Caledonian Sleeper, Cross Country, East Midlands Trains, Thameslink, Great Western Railway, West Anglia, and Eurostar, as well as the Heathrow and Gatwick Express services.


Plan Your London Train Journey

When visitors take trains to London from Sway, it's advisable to check which station the train arrives at. There are many arrival points, and they may be a fair distance from where you actually want to be. It's also a good idea to pick up an Oyster Card upon arrival, or to set up credit cards for contactless payment on all London transport. Buses and tubes do not accept cash in London.

If you are planning multiple journeys within Britain, check carefully from which of the London stations your train departs. It can be complicated, for example the direct daytime trains to Edinburgh leave from King's Cross station while the overnight sleeper train services to Scotland all leave from Euston.

  • Split Your London Train Tickets
Split ticketing is something many seasoned passengers on Sway to London trains already practice and is where instead of having one train ticket to take you to London from Sway the journey is broken down into two or more parts with a separate rail ticket for each sector where the train stops.

For example, if you wanted to travel from Station A to Station D, you would expect to buy a ticket direct from A to D. However, you may find it a lot cheaper to buy a ticket from A to B, and another from B to C and still another from C to D for a cheaper combined train ticket price. This is especially true when not all sectors of your journey are during peak time.
