Many of our customers enjoyed the previous series and are interested in finding out whether our tours head to destinations that are visited in the programme. Check this page to see all Great Continental Railway Journeys episodes and the corresponding Great Rail Journeys tour.

“Really interesting few days, spoiled only by the weather restricting our time on Holy Island and closing Bumburgh Castle. Hotels and food very good. Tour guide Tim was excellent.

“The Irish landscape is beautiful and we covered a huge area on our trip. The hotels were good and our guide and driver were excellent. The only reason I have given 4* rather than 5* is it was exhausting. The trip packed so much in and we didn't have any free time. If the holiday had been extended by a few days it would have been so much better. We didn't have any time to sightsee.

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.
