Rather avoid planes? From timeless, romantic rail journeys to a range of local escapes, experience a stress-free, no fly holiday.

With fantastic rail connections to continental Europe, and a number of UK short break offerings right on our doorstep, there has never been a better time to enjoy a no fly holiday. Whether you have a bit of a phobia of flying - or perhaps airport security stresses you out! - we offer a number of escapes that will allow you to still spread your wings, so to speak.

Within the UK, you can groove along with John, Paul, George and Ringo on a musical tour of Liverpool, explore the stunning castles and soaring mountain ranges of North Wales, or head further north to see the miles of green that a Scottish rail journey will allow. And if you fancy travelling a few hours to Europe, you can leap across the channel (well, under) to catch André Rieu performing in his homeland of the Netherlands. The best part is that those who are carbon conscious can enjoy a more sustainable mode of travel. Additionally, travelling without flying means you can move at a more laidback pace, and the scenic journey can become a new element of your holiday.
