The Man in Seat Sixty-One began as a hobby site for train-travel enthusiast and former rail industry employee Mark Smith. It has since become a must-use guide for anyone travelling by train.
Mark has created a wealth of guides to encourage people to travel more sustainably and to do so in the most cost and time effective manner.
For people wanting to cut their carbon footprint when travelling, information on alternatives to flying was often difficult to come by. That is until The Man in Seat 61 inspired people to do something more rewarding with their travel opportunities, enabling them to take train or ferry by giving the confidence and know-how to book such trips at affordable prices.
Check out the website to find guides on how to travel sustainably to pretty much anywhere in the world!
