Want to see some of the countryside outside London. Only have 1 day. Want to take a train. Any ideas?
Oxford or Cambridge are great places to visit on a day trip and are very tourist friendly. Cambridge you catch the train from Kings Cross and Oxford from Paddington. Both trips take about an hour. If you book online in advance at national rail website it will be cheaper. Cambridge has more of a countryside feel, with huge meadows to wander around in, but both are very pretty and small enough to walk around in a day. about 6 years agoAnswered by cat1602
I absolutely love Brighton. It's by the beach and you don't feel as though you're in England almost. It also has a pier and lots to do. The whole look and feel is very nostalgic. I also love Richmond which is just on a last tube stop on the district line, or you can take a regional train which just takes half hour to get to. Lovely town and nice, relaxing feel to it with the Parks, nature and the river. about 6 years agoAnswered by Alana Rayman
If you decide to stay in London rather than get the train, then Kew Gardens is just wonderful, and you could go from there to Richmond to the parks or sit and watch the Thames go by. about 6 years agoAnswered by Sam Richards
We did Bath as a day trip on our last trip to London. It's just about 90 minutes by train.If you love heritage and culture you'll find it there. :) about 6 years agoAnswered by Emma Lowen
