Arguably the most pleasing of all the ways to get from A to B, train travel has long been a favourite mode of transport with Original Travel. If you agree, we will always try to weave a train trip into your itinerary, because it allows you the chance to really appreciate your destination in a way air travel just can’t, and without the faff inherent in driving yourself.

There's also an undeniable romance to this particular form of 'slow travel', although if you find yourself on board a Japanese bullet train speeding along at 200 mph the epithet 'slow' might not really apply.

In addition to simply savouring the joy of a leisurely pace (in most cases), there are the environmental benefits of train travel to shout about, too. With the increasing awareness of the impact of travel on the planet, as a society, we are becoming ever more conscious of travelling with a conscience. Enter the train. With tracks across the world connecting some seriously cool destinations via some seriously scenic routes - and all with a fraction of the carbon footprint of a flight - getting to where you're going has never been more elegant, or guilt-free.

We know the finest rail routes - many involving stupendous feats of tunnel and bridge engineering - in our favourite destinations around the world and can talk you through which elegant compartments to book on the most luxurious trains. Settle back, watch beautiful scenery drifting by, order a drink from the passing waiter and enjoy travel at its most civilised.
