Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journeys

Michael Portillo has been captivating audiences, not only with his marvellous taste in clothing, but also thanks to his fantastic and informative railway programmes. Armed with Bradshaw's variety of railway guides, Portillo explores beautiful countries through the eyes of the eponymous man, who wrote his guides well over 100 years ago. Enjoy experiencing how the variety of countries, railways, and people have changed in the last century. Experience the beauty of India and its development from being under the British Raj to India as a magnificent independent country.

Discover the turbulent Eastern Europe with almost unrecognisable kingdoms of the past to the countries of today, morphed and changed by wars and communism. In the British Isles uncover a country once connected entirely by steam, now enjoying stunning heritage rails as a tourist experience, and in America, the country once built on the back of railroads, enjoy the epic adventures that can take you from sea to shining sea. Of course, all of these wonderful destinations are lent Portillo's unique charm and charisma, moving Bradshaw's into the modern age, and showing the audience some of every featured countries most wonderful hidden treasures - both old and new.

Rocky Mountaineer will appear in Michael Portillo's Great Canadian Railway Journeys, airing at 6.30pm on 24th January 2019 on BBC Two. Find out more about the Rocky Mountaineer here.

Mrs M James
4 stars
“Enjoyed the whole holiday especially the steam train and the trip to the top of the hill although the electric railway was a bit noisy and uncomfortable .The hotel was good with very good food. The coach driver was one of the best ever, a mine of information and an expert in motor bike racing. I wish I could have seen a Manx cat but I didn’t have enough time.
