Travelling by train can often be quicker than the car, and give you the opportunity to relax or work while you travel.
Plan your rail journey with National Rail from any of the six rail stations in the Wokingham area. Visit the operators' websites for specific timetables, routes and ticketing information:
South Western Railway - Reading to London Waterloo (via Earley, Winnersh, Winnersh Triangle and Wokingham)
Great Western Railway - Reading to Gatwick (via Wokingham), Great Western Mainline (via Twyford) and Henley Branch
You can also plan your journeys with Trainline to plan your journeys in and across 45 countries in the UK and Europe. Their aim is to bring together all rail, coach and other travel services into one simple experience.
You should be able to find a hard copy of the rail timetables at the train station.
