It was not clear that a BritRail pass would have covered this additional expense./

Straight to LondonJanice Anderson ,USAAge: 60+September 17, 2013
Get off the plane, get your luggage, climb on the Heathrow Express and you are straight on to London with no fuss. Faster than the bus, cheaper than a taxi, and easy to use, the Heathrow Exzpress is a great deal.

Great way to see the countrysidecheryl Montante ,USAAge: 50-59September 17, 2013
This trip allow us to experience a wide variety of train services. We bought first class passes. On trains that first class was available, the travel was comfortable. The trains that did not offer first class service were okay, to cattle car crowds such as we experienced trying to get into Wales. Why they only have only two cars for that volume of passengers is beyond any logic. Still trying to figure out why luggage space for first class is very limited to non existent. Many of my fellow passengers remarked on the same. Lugging my heavy luggage up and over across the tracks in the rain to meet my connecting train was also a interesting challenge. A ramp would have been nice. All I kept thinking was that my mother could travel by train in Scotland. The Virgin train we had the pleasure to ride, was wonderful in every sense of the word. Aside from the trials and tribulations of train travel, overall, it allows visitors to enjoy the beautiful country in relative comfort.

Very Good ServiceSue Chadwick ,AustraliaAge: 40-49September 17, 2013
After arriving in Heathrow from an overnight flight from Australia, this was the best way to travel into London. after clearing customs & immigration there were plenty of sign posts directing us to the station. The train was clean & modern and quick. Good value for money - no but it the train got us into London with no complications which is exactly what two jet lagged Australians needed.

Heathrow HolidayJ. & T. Holmes ,CanadaAge: 60+September 17, 2013
After a long flight from Vancouver, BC, we easily located the Heathrow Express which whisked us away to Paddington Station in London. This was our jumping off point to travel by train to Edinburgh the following day. Great service, wonderful time! Will definitely use the Express again on future trips to UK.

Eurostar train vs flightDanielle Santal ,USAAge: 60+September 17, 2013
Taking the Eurostar from Pancras Station (London) to Gare du Nord (Paris) was a great convenience: extremely easy "check-in", but a long walk to our car, yet a short walk upon arrival. Our seats were roomy with plenty of leg room, so it was quite comfortable (and we traveled tourist class). The ride was short (2.5 hours), barely time to read a short story or two, a chance to have a bite to eat if we wanted to (not very good, though!)... With a flight, we would have had to deal with the ride to the airport, the unavoidable check-in, security check lines, the wait for boarding, getting the checked luggage upon arrival, the ride to downtown from the airport... Yuck! Too bad there are no trains between the US and Europe!!!
