Travelling by train can often be a more relaxing way to get from A to B than flying, and offers the added benefit of scenery unfolding before you as you glide through the countryside. Then there are the benefits to the environment of choosing a lower-carbon emitting way to travel. We have collated some of our tours that can be started by train from the UK and which do not include internal flights, meaning you can enjoy a whole adventure without a single flight.
