“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.

“This holiday was a delight. Covid 19 caused last minute changes but they managed to make them work so well that we saw more than originally promised. Worth every penny

Mr Stretton
4 stars
“Most of this trip was excellent, from booking, postponing and rebooking, the day-today programmes and particularly our Tour Manager Nicky. The Hotel was convenient, next to the station and right in the middle of Carlisle, and individual staff were friendly and helpful. The reasons I only gave 4 stars were a) The food. For the Welcome Dinner on first evening the chicken was dried out and the potatoes undercooked. Breakfasts - a good selection but the cooked elements left open and were frequently dried up. Bedroom tea tray. We understood why daily full cleaning of bedrooms was on hold due to Covid restrictions, but why was it necessary to have to fill in a form to replace every tea-bag or milk portion? b) bedrooms. The original antislip pattern in the bath had worn a bit thin, so a note by the bath advised 'If you can't find your bathmat please ask'. Why not leave it IN the bathroom and not hide it in the wardrobe? The toilet needed 5 go's to make it flush properly The hot water was not as hot as it should be. c) Cleanliness. A note outside the lift said 'This lift is cleaned regularly'. It clearly wasn't. the same bits of rubbish and marks on the wall were present for 4 days. We could sympathise with the slightly worn stair carpets in several places but, but again they did not appear to have been hoovered for a week. Overall it fell short of our expectation of an AA 3 star hotel

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.
