Travel & Adventure

Britain's Scenic Railways

Beneath soaring mountains and along shimmering shorelines, we take in the breath taking landscape on some of Britain's most scenic railway journeys from the remote wilderness of Rannoch Moor to the cinematic beauty of the Glenfinnan Viaduct and open expanse of Lake Windermere. 

From busy cities to rural communities, 24,000 trains cross Britain every day traveling some 10,000 miles.  The rail network is continually growing as new track is laid and old sections of the line are brought back to life. Britain is also home to over a hundred heritage railways that welcome millions of visitors every year to celebrate a bygone era of steam. The chance to ride on a steam train – to experience the sights, the sounds and the smells – is something that still resonates deep within us.  We meet the railway workers, volunteers and travellers who share their experiences of Britain’s most scenic railways with both warmth and humour.
