Experience a Grand Tour with Rail Discoveries

We have an exciting array of steam train tours that transport you to stunningly picturesque destinations. Wake up to snowy mornings on one of our Christmas markets tours when you escape during the festive season to a winter wonderland. Germany's imposing Harz Mountains are one of the most stunning sights you will see on steam rail tours.

Journey along the narrow-gauge railway that winds to the summit of these exquisite peaks and witness their natural splendour. If you prefer to stay closer to home on steam rail tours, the Scottish Highlands abound with rugged charm, and a tour of Yorkshire lets you uncover some real hidden gems.

As you watch endless panoramas of striking backdrops expose themselves throughout steam rail tours, look out for incredible landmarks such as wonderfully engineered viaducts.

On many of our steam rail tours you will be accompanied by a Tour Manager who ensures your journey is as pleasurable as possible. Discover the unique culture and history of the places that you visit on guided sightseeing tours or explore the area further on optional excursions. Wherever you choose to let our steam rail tours take you, you will be assured a most unique experience.

The inimitable sounds and smell of the steam train evokes an idealistic past and coupled with immense scenery, you will soon become submersed in the romantic atmosphere. Browse through our selection of steam rail tours and experience an extraordinary holiday with Rail Discoveries.
