Great Continental Railway Journeys Series 1-3

The first and third series of Great Continental Railway Journeys follows Michael Portillo around Europe. Michael's adventures often follow George Bradshaw's Edwardian book, the Great Continental Railway Guide.

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.

“I thought the journey was excellent and good value. I loved all the travel and activities. The hotels were good on the whole and the food provided was better than I had expected I did not take either photos or videos so cannot answer the next question.

“Good holiday although a couple of alterations would be advantageous e.g visit Harlow Carr in the afternoon instead of morning and catch an earlier N Yorks Moors train as the last part of our journey was in the dark and we returned very late to the hotel. It was well organised, both hotels were satisfactory and the food in the Crowne Plaza in Harrogate was excellent especially the choice at breakfast. There were some very nice excursions with enthusiastic local guides
