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.

Rail Discoveries offers a wide range of rail tours that explore the culture of Europe. Whether you are on our standard or luxury rail holidays, our itineraries are overflowing with excursions and chances to take in magnificent scenery. From the rolling hills of France to the glistening lochs of Scotland, rail travel offers you an incredible vantage point of some of the world's most breathtaking landscapes. Many of our luxury rail holidays include excursions on famous vintage and narrow-gauge railways, which twist high around mountains and down into steep valleys whilst passing inspirational scenery like frozen waterfalls and breathtaking lakes.      

Each of our holidays includes a specially created programme of excursions as well as free time for visiting sights of personal interest or enjoying the amenities that are offered by your hotel. The activities featured on our luxury rail holidays are selected to fit in with the character of your break, with opulent gala dinners, fireworks and live music on our New Year's breaks whilst our Special Interest holidays feature carnivals, walking tours and a tall ship sailing event. With such a great combination of activities already included in your break, along with all accommodation, transport and a selection of meals, you will not have to plan anything extra for your luxury rail holiday.

We also offer a variety of UK and Ireland breaks which give guests the opportunity to rediscover the rich culture and heritage that lies on their doorstep. From UNESCO sites in Wales to the inviting coast of the New Forest, there is plenty of choice of luxury rail holidays for those looking for an exciting break close to home.
