Railways across the UK offer fantastic views in beautiful settings. The Welsh Highland travels through the simply stunning Aberglaslyn Pass as trains travel from Porthmadog to Caernarfon and the West Somerset Railway clings to the coast from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard.
And don't forget other facilities that railways offer. with many running special dining trains for that Sunday treat or you could book to have a go at driving a steam locomotive. Driver experience courses are available on many heritage lines offering a range of different days to suit your needs.
