Getting Around in England

England isn’t a large country: the entire United Kingdom (including England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland) is about the size of Oregon, so you're less likely to fly within the country. The country's train and bus systems are extensive and relatively well maintained; in major towns and cities there’s generally no need to rent a car. To see castles and historic houses—which can be far from towns—you may have to rent a car or join a tour. Driving is on the left, and gas (petrol) is expensive at $5.10 a gallon. Train tickets tend to be two to three times more expensive than bus fares, but trains are usually at least twice as fast as buses.
