1Train travel lets you step down a gear. As the pace of life gets ever faster, this is a holiday that enables you to put the brakes on, relax and enjoy the scenery.
2Take an escorted rail tour and you have time to get to know your travel companions and enjoy shared experiences. The art of conversation is far from dead!
3I love travelling but hate being confined to a seat for long periods, whether in a plane or a car. On a train I can stand up when I need to, walk to the bar or buffet car, and chat to friends in other rows.
4Many high-speed trains – and many stations – now offer Wifi for those who want to keep in touch on the move. The newest Eurostar trains even offer on-board entertainment via your tablet or smartphone.
