Cities & Sightseeing

Rail travel really is the best way to make the most of a city break. You can avoid lengthy check-ins, giving you more time to enjoy the civilised journey to your destination. The new high-speed train from iconic St. Pancras International will whisk you from London to Brussels in under two hours. Rail holidays with Planet Rail are Carbon Neutral, whilst all rail travel is 10 times less polluting than flying. So you can rest assured that your journey is not costing the earth.

All our City Break holidays include First Class rail travel (Leisure Select with Eurostar) from London, with larger seats and extra legroom, and private transfers directly to your hotel. So you can sit back, relax, enjoy the journey in comfort and arrive refreshed.

We can tailor-make your city break by including rail travel from anywhere in the UK to London and organising special arrangements at your destination. Whether you seek a romantic dinner, a guided walking tour or a leisurely canal cruise we can devise a bespoke service just for you.
