New for 2016, we are thrilled to be launching a range we consider to be amongst the most exciting of all our holidays yet, Great Rail Journeys' Historical tours. We feel these forays into the past are perfectly matched with some of our already existing cultural experiences, including gastronomic delights and carnival atmospheres across Europe, which is why we have created this dedicated collection of rail tours. Now you can find each of our itineraries that combine such unmissable sightseeing opportunities in one place.
Stroll through history with Great Rail Journeys' fantastic selection of new Historical Tours. Created in conjunction with the University of York, these informative experiences are the best way to explore some of history's most important figures and events; from the poignant memorials and battlefields of World War One to treading in the regal footsteps of the British Raj in vibrant India. So whether you discover the private life of Winston Churchill and walk the halls of his childhood home or follow the path of Jesus' apostle James, on our Madrid, Santiago & the Way of James tour, there is something for every budding history fanatic. Not only is each tour insightful and full of detail but includes all the usual wonderful accommodation and fantastic excursions our customers have come to expect.
