Trains to London

London is the capital of Great Britain and the most visited city in the United Kingdom (and, often, the entire world). A train to London will arrive at one of the city's nine major train stations, which connect London with the whole of the United Kingdom. The departing destination determines the rail company traveled with, as individual rail operators serve different British regions.

The United Kingdom does not have a nationalized railway system and different providers serve different regions of the country. The rail company used depends on the departing destination. Arriva provides trains to northern England from London. Southern serves the whole southern England region, Southeastern serve the easternmost part of England and Southwestern, the southwest. East Anglia provides trains to the east and Midlands.
