Classic Rail Journeys

The rail networks of Europe have been fundamental for much of the development in the industrial age. Cheaper to build than a canal and offering a quick and convenient way to travel over long distances, railway was both a practical necessity for the industrial age and an iconic luxury. With the rise of the internal combustion engine it seemed that the train would be retired but as more and more people take to the road making a simple journey from A to B has turned into a stressful queue of traffic jams, congestion and angry motorists. Taking the train remains a fast and efficient means of transport that offers the traveller time and space to relax. This has inspired us to offer the finest classic rail journeys.
