Experience the UK's Famous Railways and Rolling Fields

Rolling green dales, dramatic moorland, seaside promenades, and historic spa towns; there is something for every taste and budget on our rail holidays in the UK and Ireland.

Trains often access places that other modes of transport cannot reach, making a journey by rail one of the most scenic ways to travel. On many of our tours, you will have the chance to experience the charm of a traditional locomotive on a heritage railway such as the North Yorkshire Moors Railway or the Ffestiniog Mountain Railway.

 

 

Ffestiniog Railway

The destinations on our rail tours have their own special appeal. In Ireland, for example, we contrast the ancient with the modern by including visits to the Blarney Castle in addition to a guided tour of Dublin, giving you a great insight into the country and its sights.

Our fantastic programme of included excursions enhances your holiday further by providing experiences of cultural, historical, or social value.

To ensure that your holiday runs smoothly, all our breaks are accompanied by a professional Tour Manager who will be on hand from the moment the tour begins to answer all of your questions and provide advice and information about the local area. Transport, accommodation, and a range of excursions are also included on our escorted tours.

Choose a holiday from the tour listing above or call one of our friendly Tour Advisors on 01904 730 148 to book your next holiday in the UK and Ireland.
