United Kingdom Holidays by Rail

H ere in the UK, we have a great range of rail holidays right on our doorstep.  From the tip of Cornwall, through the Welsh mountains and the stunning Lake District up to the Scottish Highlands, the scenery of Britain is best enjoyed from a train window rather than a busy motorway.  The rail network extends to small towns and villages across the country, and includes some evocative heritage railways, often using steam locomotives.  Top highlights include the Heart of Wales line, Cambrian Coast Line in west Wales, roaring through the Lake District on the way to Scotland and of course the West Highland Line.
