England Travel tips and information
How to get to England: Most travellers will fly into the capital London. It is serviced by four major airports: London Heathrow, London Gatwick, London Luton, London Stanstead. British Airways is the national carrier and Easyjet the main low-cost carrier. A huge number of airlines operate in and out of England.
Trains are most commonly caught all over England, where an extensive rail network exists. The London tube is the local public transport and local buses also operate everywhere.
National Express offer a regional bus network and ferries leave from Dover in the south of England.
Renting a car is a great way to see England, outside of the London city area. A car is not required in London itself due to the excellent public transport. Parking is difficult in London and it is expensive also. We use and recommend Auto Europe.
