Train from London to Windermere in the Lake District

We are planning a trip to England to include 6 nights in London and 4 nights in Windermere. We plan on taking a train from London to Windermere, but are not sure whether to return to London by train and stay in London another night for the flight home, or take the train to Manchester, stay a night, then fly out the next day back to Boston from Manchester. We are booking the flights and London stay through Virgin, and are booking the rest of the trip on our own. Any suggestions?

    Hi Gen,

    You can check schedules and purchase your tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    If you end up going back to London for your flight, you would want to be sure to check the button for 'Round-Trip' when you go to do your search. Trains in the United Kingdom offer discounts for roundtrip travel, but these rates would only be quoted to you if you do your search as a roundtrip, rather than separate 'one-ways'. This would only apply if you do a roundtrip directly between London and Windermere. If you were to return to London from somewhere else, for instance, you would not be able to receive any discounts for a roundtrip.

    A connection between London and Windermere does involve changing trains once in Oxenholme en route. The trains between London and Oxenholme are high-speed 'Virgin' trains.

    Generally, trains in the United Kingdom can only be booked within 60 to 75 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended travel falls outside of this time frame, you would just enter a date within the next 60 or 75 days to get an idea of cost and view schedules when searching the route on our website.
