A monumental moment in history

Today has been described as a monumental moment in the history of rail travel in the UK. It’s certainly good news for Kent, as today saw the first high speed trains from St Pancras arriving just 30 minutes later in Ashford in Kent, cutting 47 minutes from the usual journey time from Ashford to London Charing Cross. The trains travel at 142 miles per hour and the service will be officially launched later this year.  The journey comes at a premium price but I believe it’s great news for Kent’s tourism industry as it makes the Garden of England even more accessible for Londoners and overseas visitors, wanting to escape from the city, for a day out or short break.
