  • National Rail Enquiries website includes a comprehensive rail planner and has live departure board information, which can be accessed online, by telephone (0871 200 49 50), or text (84950). It also provides information on incidents and planned engineering works that may affect your journey. The Pocket Timetable facility gives you a customised timetable for the stations, times and the days of the week that you want.

Female Traveller

http://www.femaletraveller.co.uk/

Female Traveller was formed to offer a unique reference point on advice for women travelling....

Women make up a significant number of the tourists who explore the United Kingdom and travel abroad each year, but rarely are the specific needs of female travellers addressed in a comprehensive manner. At FemaleTraveller we aim to provide information and advice that will be useful to all women who travel, whether they venture out alone, journey with children, are accompanied by friends or join a tour group for their trips.

From feminine hygiene tips to navigating segregated communities, basic self defence to coping with miscarriage, working abroad to surviving political upheaval, the writers of FemaleTraveller tackle topics that will help keep all female travellers healthy, safe and well prepared for what they might encounter as they travel around the world.
