Rail holidays

The best thing about taking a rail holiday is that you'll see so much more of your destination. As the train rumbles along the tracks you'll see all those little things that make being somewhere else so fascinating. Watch the view change as the train crosses rivers, passes valleys and mountains and cuts through fields and great plains. Look out too for wildlife you wouldn't see travelling another way. Everything changes when you reach the outskirts of towns and cities and from the comfort of your carriage you'll see the details of people's everyday lives; the hustle and bustle of urban living. A train journey is also the perfect time to gather your thoughts or chat to your travelling companion and new friends. Or why not use the time to read your guidebook, researching all those exciting things you're planning to do when you reach your next thrilling destination?
