Christmas Rail Tours

Escape from the stresses of the festive season on one of our spectacular Christmas Holidays

Powdery snow that crunches underfoot, candles at Midnight Mass and the jingle of bells as your horse-drawn sleigh slides through the forest combine with festive meals and traditional celebrations on our Christmas rail tours. Somehow the true spirit of Christmas is easier to find in the right setting. Whether we are gathering to turn on the Christmas tree lights in a quaint medieval village or speeding across snow-covered plains on festively decorated trains, this will be a Christmas to remember on one of our festive Christmas tours.

All of our Christmas rail tours are escorted by a Tour Manager who meets you in London and stays on hand throughout the holiday, ready to deal with any small problems that may arise. Our Tour Managers also have a good knowledge of the destinations that our guests visit, which means that if you are unsure how to spend your free days they will be able to advise you on the best sights and excursions in the region.
