Rail Discoveries

One of the best things about rail journeys is the opportunity to see a destination from its best vantage point - winding through the towns, cities and countryside on board an incredible range of trains. Couple this with incredibly knowledgeable Tour Managers, who are there to escort you from the beginning to the end of your tour. The Tour Managers also ensure that you can get to your train on time, meet in the right places, and, on days off, can help you find the very best sights to see. Meet new people and make new friends, whether it is on a trip to visit a beautiful local destination, or over a beautifully prepared meal. Rail Discoveries
