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.

5 stars
“The tour was great. It gave a great taste of all the heritage railways in Norfolk. The days had just enough things in so it you always had something to do, but you didn't feel rushed at all. Even with covid restrictions, all the things we did were normal enough to enjoy to their fullest. The tour manager was very friendly, helpful and went above and beyond to ensure the tour went smoothly.

Isle of Wight

Graham Douglas
5 stars
“The Isle of Wight remains one of the UK’s unspoilt treasures and has remained so for many years. I first visited in the 1950’s. The only problem is Sandown sea front where there are a number of derelict buildings, but this is the fault of the local council rather than the island. Nevertheless it would be good if something was done about this sooner than later.

D Bailey-hague
5 stars
“Holiday was absolutely great, but the admin lead up to it was far from good - very disappointing. We only knew we were flying back a short time before departure which incurred us in hotel costs which we had not expected. Also telephone calls were not returned to my friend, Mrs Anne Hutchings, by Gary Compton, despite promises via our Tour Manager, Kevin. The four of us who went together are now reluctant to holiday with your company again if this is the way you treat customers. It seems once you have our money there is no further commitment from Human Resources!! However, we are all agreed that Kevin was extremely "on the ball". I would very much appreciate a response from you to this review which I write on behalf of Mrs Watson, Mrs Osborne, Mrs Hutchings and myself, Mrs Bailey-Hague.
