Enjoy an escorted rail break that includes a variety of excursions with Rail Discoveries holidays. Our diverse selection of train tours include everything from short breaks to luxury rail holidays and you can enjoy a holiday surrounded by breathtaking scenery whatever time of year that you travel. In the bright days of summer the effervescent valleys, meadows and hills overflow with wildlife and beauty, then the rustic shades of autumn transform the forests and mountains into a colourful setting for the medieval castles and ancient monuments of the continent. Of course winter has its own charm with the pristine snow that clings to the Alps and the famous fairy-lit Christmas markets of Germany, France and Belgium. Slowly spring breathes fresh life onto the hamlets and cities that are visited on our luxury rail tours and the countryside bursts to life with brightly coloured flowers like daffodils, poppies and lavender.  

Our diverse selection of holidays include multi-centre tours which offer you the chance to explore a variety of different cultures and cities on one break, as well as holidays that focus on a single destination, offering you the chance to explore all the many aspects of its attractions and heritage. Browse the holidays below to discover more about what's included in our fantastic breaks.
