By Rail

Travel by rail - a relaxing way to reach your walking or cycling holiday

City culture en route
Why not make more of your journey by including a night or two in a city along the way? We can arrange stopovers in Paris, Lille, Nîmes and Munich, to name but four.

A relaxed start to your holiday

Travelling by rail from the UK is a very relaxing (not to mention environmentally friendly!) way to reach your holiday – no traffic jams, no long queues for check-in, no rush for an unassigned seat, and a generous luggage allowance that means you can pack as much as you can comfortably carry. Watching the gradual changes in the landscape, you gain a real sense of journey, too, that is impossible from the air, the anticipation mounting as you draw nearer to your destination.

Browse our rail experience section to find out more.

We’ll take care of the arrangements for you...

What’s more, the organisation need be no more complicated than booking a flight. We have many years’ experience of arranging Eurostar and connecting services, making us the leading specialists in rail travel among activity-holiday companies.

Tell us where you’d like to travel from (London St Pancras or Ebbsfleet) and whether you’d like to travel in standard or first class, and we’ll then work out the best route and timings, book the trains, reserve seats for you, print out your tickets, and provide full details of your journey, including any changes, in a personalised itinerary.

...wherever you’d like to travel

With most regions within a day’s travel from London, France is the obvious choice. In fact, a third of our customers holidaying in L’Hexagone travel there by rail, but an ever-increasing number of customers holidaying further afield are choosing this option too. North-east Spain and many parts of Switzerland can be reached in a day, while Italy, southern Spain, Portugal, Austria, Denmark and the Czech Republic are feasible with a sleeper train or an overnight stay in a city en route. There is nowhere in Europe we can’t get you to!
