Nottingham has good rail links and is a hub for railways in the East Midlands. Direct services operate from here to London St Pancras, Birmingham, Derby, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Peterborough and Cardiff.
Nottingham has now just the one mainline railway station, located to the south of the city centre on Carrington Street. Journey time from London St Pancras to Nottingham is around one and three quarters hours but journeys are subject to delays and cancellation.
You can also buy a integrated travel ticket to use all trams, buses and local trains in the area.
The main points that lets the rail service in the area down are the cost of rail fares and the frequency of rail services during the day to local stations.
