Rail Holidays UK

Discover historic towns, charming local events and idyllic countryside with a refreshing rail journey through some of the United Kingdom's most enchanting locations. Rail holidays in the UK offer you the chance to explore some of the country's most famous sights, as well as a few of the lesser known highlights, from the sandy beaches of Bournemouth all the way to the wild beauty of the Scottish Highlands.Taking a journey by train is one of the most scenic ways to travel and gives passengers the opportunity to admire the passing scenery for the whole journey from the comfort of their carriage.  Travel routes often access areas that other modes of transport cannot reach, offering guests spectacular views and unique vantage points. Many of our holidays also include trips on narrow-gauge and heritage railways where you can experience the charm of a traditional locomotive. On every one of our rail holidays the UK destinations that are visited have their own special appeal. Tours to these locations range from general sightseeing trips to specialist themes and festive Christmas breaks. The itineraries for these holidays are created to offer an enjoyable mixture of attractions, and accommodation, travel and excursions are all taken care of so that you can relax and concentrate on enjoying your time away.
