... just a few hours from London Do as many a traveler in Britain does. Top off your sightseeing with a fillip of foreign flavor. A bit of French spice adds contrast, an accent of glamour that is Paris. It's so easy to do, too. Because Britain is the gateway to Paris as it is to the whole Continent and Ireland. In its whole range of travel accommodations, the fleet of modern cross-channel steamers operated by or in association with British Railways looms large. You may depart from many points for continental destinations. One way to Paris is via the crack Golden Arrow from London-a synonym for luxury. Another, The Night Ferry-enables you to sleep your way to the "City of Light." British Railways helps you achieve your primary goal of seeing more of Britain. But its facilities go far beyond Britain; they just begin with rail. See Britain first. See British Railways always. FREE: Your Holiday Data Kit... a complete tour planner is yours on request.
