Britain's Coastal Railways

Misty mountain, bustling cities, rolling countryside, there are so many incredible attractive elements that make up the UK. Arguably, the most beautiful of these is the glorious stretch of coastline which winds its way around all four nations of the isles. Picturesque cliffs gaze over blue oceans, shimmering white beaches greet the waves, and who can forget the promenades, harbours and piers of Britain's cheerful seaside towns?

The good news is that Britain's excellent selection of coastal railways are an absolute delight to discover and they criss-cross all over the islands, travelling over the cliffs and pulling into pretty coastal stations. Some are heritage, some are panoramic but all are innately enchanting in their own way.

Great Rail Journeys offer a dazzling range of coastal railway journeys for your perusal, take a look below and discover rail holidays to England, Wales, Scotland, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland!

5 stars
“We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It visited some very interesting locations that were well integrated. The introductions were very good, especially the one on the canal trip. The visiting academic's talk after dinner came at a rather sleepy point when most people were not at their most receptive. We were sorry not to have had more free time in both Manchester and Newcastle to extend the context of the tour.

“A pleasant short holiday. It was good to be gently directed to the various different forms of transport, ie coach, ferry, train etc. with no stressful long journeys. Just what I needed after the limitations of lockdown.
