Transit coverage extends to a number of mid-size cities, small towns, and rural areas as well. Directions are available between Bath and Brighton, for example, and most other searches between any two areas in England, Scotland, and Wales yielded at least one available route in Transit mode.

Apple Maps now supports the National Rail network in many areas of Great Britain, including the CrossCountry, TransPennine Express, Great Western Railway, Grand Central, Northern Rail, East Midlands Trains, Virgin Trains, Virgin Trains East Coast, Arriva Trains Wales, Hull Trains, and other train services.

While transit coverage is now comprehensive throughout much of Great Britain, directions remain unavailable in Belfast and elsewhere in Northern Ireland, which lies within the United Kingdom. Transit directions are likewise unavailable in the neighboring Republic of Ireland.

We don't talk about New York and say, New York, New York.
You're right, we talk about New York, but we sing about New York, New York.

Why do you say London, England when you have already referred to the UK? Do you think that your readers will get this London confused with say, London, Ontario?
Then later the article goes on to mention a number of towns and cities without mentioning the country where they are located?
Please be consistent. We don't talk about New York and say, New York, New York.
