Did you know the UK is home to 2,563 train stations? The UK rail network through these stations connects cities, towns and villages alike. This number excludes the train stations on London Underground and the 181 heritage railways dotted across the country. Many UK cities also have more than one train station, with Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow, Bristol, Birmingham to name just a few. Some of the UK's smaller cities also act as key junctions such as Crewe, York (home of the National Railway Museum) and Ely. From these railway stations, travellers can catch a connecting service with train operators such as Virgin Trains, CrossCountry, Great Western Railway and Eurostar.
London is by far the largest rail hub in the UK with 12 major railway stations in central London alone and far more in the outer suburbs. With this in mind, it is easy to see why London has such a large commuter population.
