“My husband and I enjoyed this holiday (made even better because of perfect weather) and the group was very friendly. The hotel was in the attractive village of Wetheral, an ideal location for all our excursions. The Crown Hotel had friendly and helpful staff and the food was good, with a wide choice. We also had a nice, comfortable room. The only criticism we have is that (without warning or explanation) no one in the group had their rooms tidied and the coffee/tea was not replenished throughout our stay. It didn't make a great deal of difference to us but I thought it a little strange and have never stayed at a hotel before when this was not done. Also, it took until the third day for us to realise we could ask for more tea bags and coffee sachets etc at reception, No one had informed us of this. Besides this strange omission, the hotel was excellent. The tour manager, Nick, was friendly and organised and because many people on the tour had problems with getting home caused by the rail strike, he put a lot of effort into ensuring group members were helped as much as possible. We enjoyed the tours, loved the train journeys and were captivated by Muncaster Castle. It was a shame we didn't have more time at Muncaster Castle (the 1 hour 45 minutes that we did have was not nearly enough and with the array of beautiful and interesting things to see, it was frustrating not to be able to enjoy the vast majority of them). However, it was good to be introduced to the Castle and we shall try to visit it for a whole day sometime in the future.

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.
