In honor of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, BritRail is offering up a promotion that transports visitors beyond the City of London and allows them to experience more of England’s coastal beauty and historic charm: from June 1st to June 30th, 2012 get an extra travel day when you purchase a BritRail London Plus Pass and, for those looking to get a glimpse into the royal life, get a Historic Royal 4 Palaces Pass for the price of a Historic Royal 3 Palaces Pass. What better way to enjoy London and beyond this summer for events such as The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and London Olympics?!

We had never been to Cornwall and had heard wonderful things about its gorgeous green scenery and beaches.
“We could take the overnight train there,” Carl pointed out.
