There are nine major British Rail train stations in London, each serving different parts of the UK. Therefore the station you travel from is determined by where you want to go. In order to make your journey more efficient, you need to know which station you leave from and how to get there.
London Transport have a 'Stationlink' bus service which runs between the major London British Rail stations; in addition all the stations are part of the Underground train network. It is reasonably easy to travel from one station to another.
On the trains, there are many levels of service, from Economy Class to First Class travel, restaurant facilities and Sleeper carriages (which allows you to have a bed to rest in during your journey).
