New Year Holidays by Train

Travelling during the festive season is made easy with Rail Discoveries, thanks to the services of a Tour Manager throughout our New Year holidays. They are on hand to ensure that everybody arrives at the platform on time and that everything runs smoothly throughout your break. A local guide is also used during a selection of our excursions, as they are able to offer a more personal and in-depth knowledge of the attractions that you visit as well as the region's history and cultural traditions. Many of the excursions that are included on our New Year holidays are journeys on heritage railways, which loop and wind through incredible scenery that can often not be reached by any other means of transport.

One of the advantages of joining our New Year holidays by train is that you are able to visit a variety of destinations, meaning that you really do get the most out of your time away. Your time travelling to the destination can also be spent absorbing yourself in a book or chatting to your fellow passengers, thanks to the freedom offered by rail. Discover the beauty of train travel by booking one of our New Year's holidays.
