As the UK’s leading rail-based holiday company, Great Rail Journeys offer the widest selection of holidays by rail, with over 300 individual tours to more than 40 countries. With over 45 years of experience we understand exactly what makes a rail holiday successful, so there is no one better to trust your holiday arrangements to. The professional Tour Managers on our holidays are integral to each tour; they not only have a passion for travel but are also approachable, unflappable and incredibly well-prepared, not to mention often being experts on the locations we travel to, so you are free to relax and enjoy your holiday. Of course, Great Rail Journeys know that it’s not all about escorted travel and so offer plenty of time for independently exploring our destinations.

On a rail holiday, often the journey is just as important as the destination, so we ensure that you travel in the best rail accommodation available. We feel that this offers comfort and luxury at an unbeatable value, in a manner that you just can’t get with air travel. A luggage handling service is available on selected tours to make your rail holiday even more stress free and effortless.

Great Rail Journeys have tours starting from as little as £355 per person for a tour of Torquay and the Eden Project, but our market is truly global. See Switzerland from the Glacier Express, take an escorted trip to the Christmas Markets or enjoy a luxury journey of a lifetime on the Trans-Siberian Express.

Or what about America? Known as much for its bustling cities as its wild, dramatic landscapes, what better way to explore this diverse land than by train. Great Rail Journeys have 30 escorted group rail tours in its portfolio and more than 40 independent rail touring options with GRJ Independent. Explore the classic rail routes, journey aboard scenic railroads or take a Coast to Coast tour and experience the USA the best way possible!
