If you’re planning a trip, especially to more rural and remote areas, you may have assumed you need to drive.
But using our railways can take you through stunning landscapes and historic towns, enabling you to hop on and off, access hidden gems, and get a different perspective. This is all while reducing your carbon footprint and avoiding the stresses of driving.
From the romantic beauty of Scotland, through picturesque Lincolnshire countryside and on to the beaches of Devon and Cornwall, they’re easier to explore by rail than you think.
