Visit by Train

A station-by-station guide for UK tourist attractions

visitbytrain.info aims to help you plan visits by train to attractions in cities, towns, villages and the countryside. Maps show attraction locations and routes to walk, with bus services where appropriate.

Most attractions have reopened with measures in place to limit the spread of coronavirus but opening arrangements may have changed and you may need to book your visit in advance. Please check attraction websites for the current situation before visiting.

Government advice is that passengers are expected and recommended to wear facemasks on public transport unless exempt. Please note that facemasks are required (unless exempt) by some operators, including Transport for London (Underground, Overground, DLR, tram, TfL Rail and London buses).

Walking from the station

Allow about 5 minutes to walk each ¼ mile, the distance shown includes the grounds of the attraction. Take care walking along roads without a path: keep to the right to face oncoming traffic but cross to the outside of right-hand bends so you can see (and be seen by) approaching traffic.
