Travelling by Rail – a special edition of the Silver Traveller

Travelling by rail is certainly growing in popularity, and Michael Portillo’s recent journeys on the British, Continental and Indian railways are highlighting how diverse those experiences can be. However, one thing is for sure, sitting back and relaxing whilst the world passes by in front of your eyes, proves to be an amazing way to travel.

You may choose just to travel on a nostalgic journey around the UK, or you could be exploring the delights of Europe within a couple of hours. Alternatively, you could combine two classic modes of travel and embark on a sail and rail adventure. The choices are truly endless!

We've pulled together a wonderful selection of offers from our favourite rail partners, all perfect for Silver Travellers, to whet your appetite for your next rail adventure.

We hope that you enjoy the read.
