Actor Julie Walters is back on our screens in a fantastic new series: Coastal Railways with Julie Walters. Join the 'Calendar Girls' actor as she ventures the length of England, Scotland, and Wales, on board some of the most spectacular scenic lines that the countries have to offer. Along the way, meet the communities, towns, and cities that enliven the places through which the lines travel.

Start the journey in Scotland, where you discover the glorious West Highland and Kyle Lines. Travel over the incredible Glenfinnan Viaduct, famous for being a filming location in 'Harry Potter', which Julie Walters also starred in, and travel on to Skye, delighting in the stunning scenes that Scotland has to offer along the way.

The Isle of Man
18/Oct
K Schoch
5 stars
“I enjoyed a wonderful 5 night stay in the Ascot Hotel, Douglas, where the food was superb - the vegetable lasagne was the tastiest I have ever had in a restaurant. The holiday was very well arranged and held together by a wonderful tour manager, Caroline, who went out of her way at times to ensure we learnt so much about the island. The coach driver David was a mine of local knowledge too. A very nice gesture was Caroline ringing as many of her 38 strong flock as she could to introduce herself before we had left home. Without doubt this was the best short holiday I have ever experienced.

“It was a good centrally positioned hotel , the trips arranged were varied and organised well. Thanks must go to the courier and coach driver. in this regard. We understand the time limits in order to see all the things offered, but at least it gave us a good indication for any future visits we may make independently.

“Very disappointed we didn’t go to Skye and Harris. Also came home with COVID-19 as I think more care could have been taken in some of the hotels.

In later weeks, Julie will explore England, including the magnificent East Coast Line that takes travellers from the industrial city of Newcastle all the way through the utterly magnificent Northumberland coastline, and on to ancient Edinburgh. Enjoy the sight of the wild and windy countryside on this episode, and watch out for the incredible Royal Border Bridge that utterly epitomises 19th century railway engineering.

In Devon and Cornwall, travel along the scenic St Erth to St Ives Line, looking for the magnificent Carbis Bay. This idyllic bay is famed for its pristine sand and almost Mediterranean looking azure sea, and the view from the train is excellent. The Royal National Lifeguard Institute is also on the agenda here, as Julie experiences the incredible service that these men and women do for their country every day.

Finally, discover Wales, and its myriad of railways, both steam and non, that take you through the verdant valleys and along its atmospheric coast. Thanks to the growth of Welsh economy during the Industrial age, the railways here are amongst some of the oldest in the world. In this episode, Julie also travels along the Talyllyn Railway, which inspired the beloved children's book, Thomas the Tank Engine.

If you would like to follow in the tracks of Julie Walters, why not take a look at some of our fantastic range of UK holidays below?

In episode 2 Julie travels from Newcastle to Edinburgh, via the coastal town of Alnmouth. Episode 3 covers Cornwall and Devon, and in episode 4, Julie travels from Cardigan Bay in Wales to Liverpool.
