Discover the World's Favourite Cities

The cities of Europe vary from historic centres such as Vienna and Prague to lively cosmopolitan cities like Berlin and Rome, where fascinating museums, striking architecture, and bustling centres come together to create the perfect city break. Cologne, Venice, Verona, and Bruges are just a few of the other destinations included in our brochure of European breaks by rail.

If you would like to escape the continent, why not explore the labyrinthine souks of Marrakech in Morocco or live the 'American Dream' with a holiday to California and the West Coast of the United States? Alternatively, experience the famed autumnal colours of New England from the historic city of Boston.

On all our city breaks, we include the services of a Tour Manager to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Our holidays include all accommodation, rail travel, and a selection of meals and excursions in the price, meaning that you won't have to keep dipping into your pocket throughout your tour.
