While train travel in the United Kingdom is known to be expensive, there are some great deals around if you know where to look.
The Sail Rail scheme is one of these deals, offering cheap travel from any British station to Dublin or Belfast via train and ferry. That might sound unlikely, but it’s one of the best-kept secrets around.
Simply book a train to Cairnryan, Holyhead or Liverpool stations and then join a ferry to Belfast or Dublin. Cairnryan is in Scotland, Holyhead is in Wales, and Liverpool is in northwest England, so there should be a convenient route wherever you are in Britain.
You can get all the way to Dublin or Belfast for around $75, with journey times depending on where you start. From London, it will take you the best part of a day, but you’ll get the chance to see a lot more of the British countryside on your way.
There are also environmental benefits to taking the train and ferry over more polluting flights, so travelers with time and a keen ecological conscious stand to benefit the most.
If you are looking for an affordable way to experience Britain, Sail Rail is a great opportunity.
