Great Britain - moving around the country
The UK has a very long railway network. That’s one of the best in Europe. The most remote regions of the country can be reached by means of such transport. In order to save a little, it is worth buying tickets one or two weeks in advance. You can also get a reusable ticket. The speed of most of the trains in England reaches two hundred kilometers per hour. The cars are clean and comfortable. Trains run according to the schedule. The maximum delay time is 10-20 minutes. The cost depends on the duration of the trip, the point of departure and the class of a train or a car. To save time, many tourists travel between the most famous cities of the kingdom by air. There are about 450 air harbors in the country. Domestic flights are available at almost every airport. You can get there by buses, trains, transfers or by taxi. Since the United Kingdom is an island state, there is a well-developed sea transport. You can move between the mainland and coastal cities by ships and ferries. Moreover, the second type of transport is more popular among tourists. Firstly, its cost is low. Secondly, it is possible to transport any goods, and even cars or bicycles on ferries. In the midst of the tourist season, water taxis, yachts, and excursion boats run on Thames in London. You can also take a taxi. There are two main types of taxis - with meters and with a fixed tariff. In the first case, such a car can be taken on the street. The second type of taxi can be called only by phone. Don't forget to get the cost of the trip from the operator in advance.
