LIST: INTERNATIONAL RAIL TICKETING OFFICES IN THE UK

These are UK-based ticketing offices, agents and online booking agencies for international rail networks and operators.

The difference between them and International Rail Networks is the presence of a UK-call centre and/or shop, and prices in sterling.

Notes

  • Almost everything you're likely to want to know about travelling on Europe's rail network can be found on Mark Smith's extraordinarily readable Seat61 website.
  • A German company, Hacon, supplies the timetable software (HAFAS) that drives many of the European rail companies' websites, and which itself is useful for planning pan-European rail journeys.
