Whether your perfect summer break entails taking in some of the best festivals, experiencing the freedom of the great outdoors, reclining on a beach or immersing yourself in the history and culture of somewhere new, a summer rail tour with Rail Discoveries promises a host of memorable sights, activities and experiences for everyone.

“This was a great holiday, staying at a super hotel in Roses, just 5mins from a lovely sandy bay. We had a superb buffet breakfast & dinner each day, & swam a few times in their open air swimming pool. The tour manager was very good, giving us information for the next day each evening, and throughout the day. All tickets were included to the 3 little trains, and also to the Dali Museum in Figueres. On the one free day in Roses we took a boat to Cadaques, where Dali had a beach house. This was an amazing town with an old part of white walled houses with red roofs,narrow cobbled lane up to an old church ; well worth a visit. Our group was small only 9, all very friendly, the first one after lock down released. We look forward to booking another holiday 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.
