    Hi Ellen.

    There is no rail pass that will combine England with any countries on the mainland continent of Europe. Therefore, you would purchase regular tickets if you'll just be traveling between Paris, London, and Amsterdam.

    You would purchase tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage (www.raileurope.com) and entering a route.

    The trains between Paris and London are high-speed 'Eurostar' trains.

    A connection from London to Amsterdam would involve changing trains once in Brussels en route. The trains from London to Brussels are also 'Eurostar' trains, and the trains from Brussels to Amsterdam are high-speed 'Thalys' trains. When purchasing tickets for a connection from London to Amsterdam, you can arrange for a transfer time in Brussels of your own choosing by doing a separate search for each segment (i.e. one search for trains from London to Brussels and then another search for connecting trains from Brussels to Amsterdam).

    Trains from Amsterdam to Paris are high-speed 'Thalys' trains.

    If you'll be staying in Paris for multiple days and plan on using the Métro and RER networks to get around the city, you'd want to consider purchasing either the 'Paris Pass' or the 'Paris Visite'.

    The 'Paris Pass' covers entry to over 60 top attractions, as well as public transportation on the Métro, RER, and buses in central Paris. You would purchase the 'Paris Pass' here: http://www.raileurope.com/en/attractions/things-to-do/paris-pass/index.html.

    The 'Paris Visite' Pass just covers local transportation in Paris, which includes the Métro and RER networks, as well as city buses. You would purchase the 'Paris Visite' here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/paris-visite/index.html.

    There is also the 'Paris Museum Pass', which doesn't cover any transportation, but does cover entry to over 60 museums and historic sites around Paris. You would purchase the 'Paris Museum Pass' here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/paris-museum-pass/index.html.

    If you'll be staying in London for multiple days and you'll be using public transit to get around, you'd want to consider purchasing either the 'London Travel Card' or the 'Visitor Oyster Card', both of which would cover public transit networks in the city, including the Tube, London Overground, and city buses.

    You would purchase the 'London Travel Card' here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/london-travel-card/index.html.

    You would purchase the 'Visitor Oyster Card' here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/visitor-oyster-card/index.html.
