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.

“This was a great holiday, staying at a super hotel in Roses, just 5mins from a lovely sandy bay. We had a superb buffet breakfast & dinner each day, & swam a few times in their open air swimming pool. The tour manager was very good, giving us information for the next day each evening, and throughout the day. All tickets were included to the 3 little trains, and also to the Dali Museum in Figueres. On the one free day in Roses we took a boat to Cadaques, where Dali had a beach house. This was an amazing town with an old part of white walled houses with red roofs,narrow cobbled lane up to an old church ; well worth a visit. Our group was small only 9, all very friendly, the first one after lock down released. We look forward to booking another holiday with Rail Discoveries.

Cotswolds & The Severn Valley

“A wonderfully organised and led trip. The train rides in the Forest of Dean and on the Warwickshire and Gloucestershire Railway were brilliant and the tour of Worcester was so informative with a lovely guide. The hotel staff were all brilliant at the White House. The only slight downer was the cuisine. The vegetables were tasteless. Maybe this was down to the Brexit driven shortages both of staff and fresh produce.
