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.
Some attractions have reopened with measures in place to limit the spread of coronavirus. Visitors numbers are usually limited and in many cases you will need to book your visit in advance. Please check attraction websites for the current situation before visiting.
For a spontaneous day out you may enjoy a walk in the countryside and this new page links to some of the walks shown on this website:
NEW Walks by train
To help limit the spread of coronavirus you must wear a face covering on public transport in England unless your are exempt. I recommend washable cotton face masks from Maskey as they are reasonably priced and made locally in London. These washable masks are better for the environment than disposable ones and after several uses they will work out cheaper too.

Queries and further information:
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.
