“Had a great time, food was lovely in all hotels, trips were very organised, we do fancy going on some trips that are abroad with rail discoveries and after the trip we have just been on would definitely book again with rail discoveries.

“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.

“Beautiful scenic locations, varied transport - rail, coach and boat - all organised for us. Luggage transported for us from Glasgow to hotel In Crianlarich.and back to Glasgow at end - much appreciated. Hotel very good, comfortable, good food , pleasant bar and adjacent areas. shame no real ale but can't have everything! Stopover in Glasgow - well located hotel on River Clyde - in beginning perhaps a bit over-long - we arrived Sunday and didn't leave till 4.30 next day which meant later part of journey was in dark and it would have been nice to have time to settle in the hotel and take a stroll, instead of just arriving in time for dinner. But cruise on Loch Lomond, train to Oban and sailing to Mull, then travelling through the majestic Glencoe scenery to the steam train to Mallaig -what's not to like?! Tour manager ever present but never intrusive, could just relax and let it all happen! Would recommend.

“We had a lovely time but I wish we could have got off the train to see the viaduct. The new hotel was good (especially the pool) but we would have liked to have been staying in Carlisle to see more of the city.

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.
