For those who appreciate the splendours of nature, there can be no place better than stunning Switzerland. A destination where the towns and cities spill over into the incomparable countryside with astonishing effects, this is certainly a country that has to be seen by rail. And on board the Glacier Express, the 'slowest express train in the world', is a fine way to do it, as the leisurely pace allows passengers to truly absorb the awe-inspiring Alpine landscape in all seasons.

Just beyond your front door, you can enjoy the very best that the United Kingdom has to offer. Climb aboard the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, the most visited heritage railway in England thanks to it's breathtaking scenery, and picturesque railway stations along the way. On the Isle of Man, uncover an incredible amount of history that still comes alive on the island, with horse-drawn trams, steam railways, and castles that are beloved by visitors from all around the world.
