Enjoy Relaxing City Breaks by Train

Envisage an exciting journey in comfort which begins the moment you board the train. Perhaps travel from London to Paris and enjoy an evening cruise along the Seine. Travel onwards to the Nice Carnival and marvel at the rainbow of colours as the enormous floats drift by in the night parade, with fireworks and music providing the backdrop to this evening of entertainment.  Perhaps you require a more sedate city break by train, so why not let a journey through Vienna, Prague and Berlin satiate your appetite for cultural exploration? On this delightful holiday you will visit many monuments and places of historical interest, including Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna which is a spectacular building set amongst an expanse of lush gardens. You will also be taken on a guided tour of Prague, visiting the medieval castle area and learning more about the history of Charles Bridge and the Baroque statues which adorn it.

One of our popular city breaks by train is the five-day tour of Amsterdam.  This holiday takes you on guided tours of the city, including an exploration of many of Amsterdam's historical sites. You can enjoy the city on a walking tour as your Tour Manager divulges the history of prominent landmarks and buildings. You can also cruise the city's canals, consuming the landscapes as you go, which include the 18th century merchant's houses that line the canals. You will have the opportunity to visit Amsterdam's museums, such as the Van Gogh Museum, which provides an engaging insight into this artist's work. The Stedelijik Museum offers extraordinary displays of modern art and interactive events. This holiday includes a trip upon the historic steam train in Medemblik, journeying through the glorious vistas of the coast. You will stop at quaint towns and have the opportunity to purchase local crafts and delicious foods. 

This selection of city breaks by train also includes festive trips to the most stunning of traditional Christmas markets. As European cities are transformed into sparkling displays of twinkling lights with decorations draped from gift laden stalls, enter into the yuletide spirit with a city break by train to Dijon, Luxemburg or Cologne. Indulge in mulled wine and spiced biscuits and become enveloped in the delectable aromas of the Christmas markets as you peruse the traditional gifts and crafts of the stalls.
