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!

Coastal Cornwall & its Captivating Gardens
Mr A Gander
“Excellent weather helped spending time in such a superb location, with excellent tours around the Cornwall countryside.
Edinburgh, the Highlands & Islands
Mrs C Inboden
“Everybody I dealt with at Great Rails was very knowledgeable and organized. Our experience was exactly as expected.
Highland Adventure
Mr D Fetterman
“Excellent holiday. Hotel great
Northern England's Industrial Revolution
Anonymous
“very good though wish we could have visited the places longer
Northern England, The Faroe Islands & Iceland
Anonymous
“We both thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. Hotels were great, Linden especially, excellent room and food if a little pricey for drinks but we expected that in a hotel. The Ship was fine but not our personal favourite. Iceland did not disappoint, the sea was calm for the North Atlantic and the weather was sun if a little chilly.
South Devon & The Dawlish Coast
Mr C Lee
“Well organised,great value hotel.
Western Highlands & Hebrides
Mr P Johnson
“Thoroughly enjoyed the round of experiences in this holiday. A bit spoilt by the weather.
A Castle On The Shores Of Loch Fyne
Anonymous
“Very little free time, both to experience the hotel and surroundings and also the local harbour. It is Scotland, but there was a lot of travel to get anywhere. The trip to the distillery was a long way for an hour’s experience, and not really of much interest to the ladies perhaps.
Grand Tour of the UK
Mrs L Janse
“There was just a little too much UK in 14 days. I looked forward to visitng Glasgow, but arriving n the evenimg and departing the next mornng diddn't give much time to do that.
