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!

Prof K Dyer
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.

Mr Derek Thomas
4 stars
“Our fifth Great Rail Journey holiday which we enjoyed until the last day which turned into a disaster. Our scheduled visit to Llangollen was changed at the last minute to Aberglasney Gardens and Brecon. We elected to cut our losses and return home after a cold and wet walk around the gardens missing the final evening dinner etc.

Dublin and The Enchanting Emerald Isle
25 Oct 2019
Mrs M Hemmelman
4 stars
“The Enchanting Emerald Isle trip was very good. We enjoyed the places visited, but would like to have had more time in Dublin. The guided tours (Jameson, Kilmainham Gaol, Titanic Experience and Glen Keen Farm) were excellent, except for the guide picked up in Dublin--she was knowledgeable, but did nothing at the Book of Kells. The Royal Marine Hotel had excellent service, great rooms, and very accommodating personnel as did the Innisfallen. The Oriel left a lot to be desired. The Ardilaun was okay. The bus driver, Dan, was excellent!!! I understand the amount of people for the trip was doubled at the last minute, which wasn't fair for us or the tour manager. Excellent help in setting up the trip and answering our questions from Great Rail Journeys. Thank you.
