Railway Services from London to the rest of the country

Long-distance inter-city trains depart from London to a variety of destinations in the rest of the United Kingdom, including Scotland. The system is organised in such a way that, each specific train terminal station provides a service to a particular part of the country. Therefore, it’s not the case that one terminal provides trains to all the destinations in the country. The following are particular national train terminals in London, and the cities and regions within Britain, which trains departing from there, serve:

Euston train terminal serves:
West Midlands, North Wales, North-West England, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow in Scotland.

King’s Cross train terminal serves:
East Midlands, Yorkshire, North East England, Peterborough, Cambridge, Leeds, York, Newcastle and Edinburgh in Scotland.

Liverpool street train terminal serves:
East Anglia, including Colchester, Ipswich and Norwich.

Charing Cross train terminal serves:
South East England and the South Coast, including the Medway towns, Canterbury and Dover.

London Bridge train terminal serves:
The same destination as Charing Cross.

Paddington train terminal serves:
South West England and South Wales, including Oxford, Bristol, Plymouth and Cardiff.

St. Pancras International train terminal serves:
East Midlands and Yorkshire, including Leicester, Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield. Additional services to Kent include Faversham, Dover, Ashford and Canterbury, via high-speed service along high-speed 1. Eurostar services also operate from here to Paris Gare du Nord, Lille Europe, Brussels Midi, as well as Ashford International and Ebbsfleet International stations on the high-speed 1.

Victoria train terminal serves:
South-East England and the South Coast, including Brighton, Canterbury and Dover.

Waterloo train terminal serves:
South-West England and South Coast, including Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth and Weymouth.

Marylebone train terminal serves:
The Chiltern Mainland, including Aylesbury, High Wycombe and Birmingham Snow Hill.

Numerous of these intercity train services take on board a significant number of passengers between their stops nearest to London and the terminal; for example, commuting via long distance trains had prevailed from Swindon to Paddington, since the introduction of the high-speed train services.
International train services are provided by Eurostar international services from St Pancras station to Paris Gare du Nord and Brussels Midi via the Channel Tunnel, with intermediate stops in Ebbsfleet International and Ashford International in Kent and Lille Europe in Nord/pas de Calais. The journey by train from London to Paris lasts for about 2 hours 15 minutes; and that from London to Brussels last for about 1 hour 51 minutes.

Alongside Eurostar’s international services, Southeastern also operates high-speed commuter services via the high-speed 1 route. It maintains 140mph Class 395 trains from London St. Pancras station to Faversham, North Kent and the Medway towns via Ebbsfleet, and also Folkestone and Dover priority to Canterbury and to Margate, via Ebbsfleet and Ashford International. The high-speed train serves all the stations along the high-speed line, including Stratford International; the latter being the only station not served by Eurostar services.
