Whilst cheap flights have made travel more accessible and are often the quickest and most convenient way of getting from A to B, trains should not be forgotten. The problem is, planning rail journeys, especially those beyond the UK, is no easy task.

Enter Seat61.com. Well known in the travel industry as being the best single resource for planning a train trip, the site brings together in one place all the practical information needed to piece together a journey by rail.

Started as a hobby by train enthusiast Mark Smith, Seat61.com will tell you how to travel overland by rail in the UK, Europe and even further afield. Indeed, Smith has travelled far and wide by train, reaching such distant destinations as Albania, Tunisia and Istanbul.

The site became so popular, that a book version has also been published – Man in Seat 61. There are even plans to run a full TV series following the making of a TV pilot.

So if you’re looking for detailed information on train journeys around the world, Seat61.com is without doubt the best resource out there, online or off.
