Why you should see Britain by rail

There is something undeniably romantic about travelling by train around Great Britain.


Perhaps it is the grand architecture of the historic railway stations, or the beautiful scenes of rolling countryside and quaint villages passing by the window.


Whatever the reason, journeying by train adds a real sense of adventure to any trip and is the most scenic and relaxing way to discover the real Britain. 



Lake District

Travel further into regional vibrancy and explore ancient castles and cathedrals, coastal seaside towns and endless green fields.


England’s north projects warmth and romance with its astonishingly beautiful landscape that is unmatched around the country.


Intriguing cities full of history await, such as Manchester, and further north you will discover the Lake District, an area of whimsical beauty that has tugged at the hearts of poets and artists for centuries.


Pay a visit to York, formally the capital of Viking territory, as well as the little fishing town of Whitby.
In the rugged southwest of England you’ll find a landscape dotted with fishing villages, secret coves and beautiful beaches.


Take to the dramatic coastline of Cornwall and breathe deeply from the salty sea air as you work up a hunger for the region’s hearty fare. This close to the water you can expect superb seafood.




One of the most well-known towns in the southwest is Bath, popular for its natural hot springs and historic charm. Step back in time as you wander through the 18th century Georgian architecture, and Pride and Prejudice fans can discover the world that Jane Austen inhabited.


A visit to the Cotswolds will ensure you have a quintessentially regional experience. Covering a huge area of 2,000 square kilometres, here you will find villages of honey-coloured stone, rolling hills, lively markets and some of the country’s greatest palaces and castles.


Get up close and personal with local customs, experience unique flavours and discover the charm of Great Britain. Every adventure is unique.
