People escape the bustling, sprawling city of London to the historic market town of Wellington each year. Most towns provide relief from the rapid pace of life in such big cities, but Wellington is an escape into another time altogether. With historic buildings dating to the Anglo Saxon times, old English pubs and a conveniently central railway station and other public transport, Wellington is the perfect UK getaway. Trains to Wellington are mostly run by Arriva Trains Wales, West Midlands Railway, Cross Country, and Virgin Trains, among other British companies.
Trains arrive at Wellington Railway Station, a historic station that opened in 1849 and is located centrally to the town. It is simple and easy to reach from all over England, Wales, and Scotland. This station is quite small but has taxi services and accessible facilities for physically impaired people.
The companies running trains to Wellington include, but are not limited to, Arriva Trains Wales, West Midlands Railway, Cross Country, and Virgin Trains. The train company depends on the place of origin and may be English, Welsh, or Scottish companies.
Wellington doesn't have a dedicated airport, the nearest being Birmingham and Manchester Airports, so trains and buses are the most convenient ways into the city from around the UK. The train station is less than half a mile from central Wellington and is designed to be convenient to reach for the town's visitors.
Wellington has been a settlement since Anglo Saxon times, and much of the town's attractions relate to acknowledging its own history and how its townspeople of old used to live. Like any self-respecting English town, there are historic inns and pubs, but Wellington is particularly famed for its arts and culture scene. Its markets, literary festivals, libraries, and ancient buildings are windows into the past. For instance, visit Sunnycroft, a National Trust house preserved in its original late Victorian glory, so that visitors can get a real glimpse into how its many owners lived. Visit in summer for the famed historic-themed Midsummer Fayre, or enjoy one of the many modern outdoor events and concerts like Sounds in the Square.
