Escorted City Breaks & Sightseeing Holidays by Rail

Across Europe and the UK, there's a magnificent wealth of cities to lose yourself in, each brimming with unique culture and unforgettable sights. Join us on an enticing city break and we'll take you to the cultural heart of each city, with carefully-planned itineraries that combine visits to must-see attractions with authentic local experiences, as well as free time to explore in a way that suits you.  

See how historic cities have developed into modern hubs while maintaining their one-of-a-kind charms, or step back in time in ancient cities seemingly unchanged in centuries; the best part of Europe is its rich diversity. Our holidays take you to your chosen city in the best way possible, with an efficient and comfortable rail journey that takes you straight into the centre of the action - and gives you the chance to admire some of Europe's stunning stations, often landmarks in themselves.
