About the tour
Spectacular colours and beautiful mountain scenery come together on an autumn adventure along America's East Coast. We stay in Cape Cod, Boston and the White Mountains, experiencing the region's terriﬁc scenic railways on a seasonal tour that brings out the very best of stunning New England.
We depart London Heathrow for Boston Airport, from where we transfer to the town of Falmouth on Cape Cod. Named for its peculiar shape, Cape Cod is a popular summer resort and offers stunning scenic beauty year-round.
Our base for the next three nights is either the family-run Shoreway Acres Inn, or The Inn on the Square. Both are ideally located just a short stroll from the beach in Falmouth's historic district.

In Falmouth the rooms were out of date, especially the electrics. The ceilings were very flimsy and we wondered what would happen if there was a fire.
