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.

“The parts of the holiday organised by Rail Discoveries was nothing short of fantastic. The tour manager was excellent throughout. Even when something out of the manager's control, late train for example, occured things were quickly put right. The only downside was the hotel in Brig. The accommodation and restaurant was excellent and we could see why Rail Discoveries choose it. But a private party caused a fire alarm just after midnight (excessive use of dry ice apparently) followed by an announcement that the alarm was a test woke everyone up. The function continued till 5.00am despite phone calls to reception and the personal intervention of the tour manager. I doubt if the hotel will be used again but it was the only flaw in an otherwise fantastic holiday.

“This was an excellent Tour in every way. Hotel was spacious and comfortable, the food was delicious and the service prompt and efficient in the dining-room. We would like to compliment our Tour Manager, Cath, on looking after us so well. The tour guide in York was also most informative and interesting. It was a little disappointing that we didn't manage a ride on a steam train, but nevertheless the actual rail journeys we had were great.
