    Hi Ross,

    If you'll be arriving via Holyhead and traveling through Wales and then England, you would purchase the BritRail Pass. For the BritRail Pass, you would click here: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-pass-5891.

    The BritRail Pass does offer senior rates for passengers over 60, which you would be quoted just by identifying yourselves as seniors when you go to check prices on our site.

    For the most comfortable travel experience, we recommend booking your BritRail Pass for 1st class. On trains in Europe, 1st class generally offers larger and more comfortable seats with more leg room. With fewer seats per train car, 1st class is also usually going to be less crowded and quieter than 2nd class.

    For trains in the UK, reservations are only able to be purchased locally and are only recommended on trains that take over 2.5 hours. You can purchase the reservations by going to the ticket window in the station and mentioning that you have the BritRail Pass. For trains in the UK under 2.5 hours in duration, reservations are not necessary at all, so the BritRail Pass is all you would need to board.

    If you also plan on taking the Eurostar between London and Paris, you would then just purchase regular tickets for that trip.You would purchase tickets from London to Paris by searching the route under 'Book Train Tickets' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    On the Eurostar, the best rates can sell out quickly, so it is recommended that these tickets be purchased as soon as possible. The Eurostar is unique from other trains in that it can be booked 6 to 9 months in advance of a departure.
