Travel in the Victorian Era

So I have a pair of young children, aged seven and nine, whose (wealthy) parents have died recently and are going from India to Britain because that's where their uncle, who's going to take care of them, is. The part I can't find is what means they'd use to travel and how long it would take - would there be a leg of the journey by boat, by coach, by train? Would it take longer because they're young? They have a nurse to look out for them, so they aren't travelling by themselves. This is early to mid-nineteenth century.

Edit: Thanks everyone who replied - I think I've got enough to go on now.
