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!

Valleys and Railways of Mid Wales

Jane Simpson
5 stars
“A 5 star trip in every way. We loved the programme; Mid Wales is spectacularly beautiful, particularly seen from narrow track steam engines; Metropole Spar Hotel is a very good hotel with attentive staff and good food. A special mention forTrevor Elliott, our manager, who was attentive, interesting and kind. He ensured that everything ran smoothly and enhanced the whole experience for us.

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.

“The host, Roger, was the best I have known. But the package, with no steam train journeys and not even dinner every night was poor value for money.

P Dolman
4 stars
“Third time I have given this review,so short version. Covered a wide selection of places and high points were very knowledgable coach driver bases in Fort William, and due to poor weather interiors of historic castles was high points. Jacobite train disappointing. Squeezing more on the tour into two hotels in Inverness caused unhappiness for those in the original booked Palace Hotel. Tour Manager David Denman was excellent.

“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.
