Great Railway Journeys

Take an unforgettable railway journey and experience your holiday from a different perspective by train, witness incredible scenery, enjoy first-class comfort and outstanding service. We’ve put together ideas of three incredible railway journeys. 

Scottish Highland Railways

Acclaimed by Michael Palin as one of the ‘Great Railways of the World’, the breathtaking run from Inverness across to Kyle of Lochalsh is just one of the trio of journeys included on this hugely popular break in Scotland. A train journey around Scotland can be one of the best ways of admiring the stunning landscapes around the country. The dramatic 42 miles of the famous West Highland line from Fort William to Mallaig, and the nostalgic trip on the steam-hauled Strathspey Railway complete an unforgettably scenic few days in one of Scotland’s most beautiful regions.  

Steam Railways of Austria

Austria is an incredible destination with a unique landscape, which include a combination of beautiful lakes, charming mountains and imperial architecture. 

Enjoy a stunning holiday to the scenic Austrian Tyrol, a land of green pastures, towering mountains and flower-decked villages, where in addition to a stay in a wonderful Alpine paradise, you’ll enjoy journeys on some delightful vintage railways through incredible countryside, and a visit to Imperial Innsbruck, the glorious Tyrolean capital. 

Historic Railways of the Isle of Man

Take a marvellous short break to a corner of our island where it seems life is lived at a slower pace – TT races aside – against a background of rolling hills and wonderful beaches blessed by clean air and unpolluted skies. An independent Crown dependency governed by the world’s longest established parliament, the island is full of fascination, with its unique heritage railways offering a marvellous way to discover and explore this very special place.

Book a holiday to this stunning island and you will have the opportunity to see ‘Seven Kingdoms’ from the summit station and discover many of the island’s attractions with your included ‘Go Explore Heritage’ card included. Journey on the narrow-gauge Isle of Man Steam Railway, visit to historic Laxey, where Lady Isabella is the world's largest working waterwheel and take also the opportunity to a visit to the classic resort Port Erin.
