    Hi Sam,

    You have come to the North American ticket and rail pass seller for the various national rail networks of Europe. We are generally not able to sell to residents of countries outside of North America, due to local restrictions. Residents of countries outside of North America would have to book through an affiliated agent in their own country. For assistance with your questions, you would have to contact either an agent in Hong Kong or one in the United Kingdom. The website you would refer to for Hong Kong is http://www.raileurope.hk/ . The website you would refer to for the United Kingdom is http://www.raileurope.co.uk/ .

    For residents of North America:

    A BritRail Pass or BritRail England Pass would cover the trains that comprise of this itinerary. The BritRail Pass covers the ticket costs for rail travel in Scotland and Wales, as well as in England. In contrast, the BritRail England Pass only covers the ticket costs for rail travel within England. Therefore, all that would be needed for this particular itinerary is a BritRail England Pass.

    A connection from the Heathrow Airport to Exeter would first just involve taking the Heathrow Express into London. Conveniently, the Heathrow Express arrives into the Paddington station in London, which is where most trains to Exeter would depart from. The Heathrow Express departs once every 15 minutes and takes about 15 minutes from terminals 1, 2 and 3 to Paddington and 23 minutes from terminal 5 to Paddington.

    The closest rail station to Stonehenge is Salisbury, which is about 15 km away. From the station in Salisbury, travelers can take a bus or taxi to get to Stonehenge.

    For planning purposes, travelers can check schedules for trains from London to Exeter (South West Trains), Exeter to Bath (CrossCountry Trains connecting to First Great Western Trains), Bath to Salisbury (First Great Western Trains), and Salisbury to London (South West Trains) by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage and entering the route. Reservations are not at all necessary on these trains, so the rail pass is all that would be needed to board. When doing a search for trains to or from Bath, it would just have to be typed as 'Bath Spa' for it to be recognized by our website.

    For travelers who will not be in possession of a BritRail or BritRail England Pass, special tickets are issued for the Heathrow Express. These can be purchased by clicking on the following link: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/heathrow-express/index.html.
