Our rail tours of Wales
Here at adeo Travel we are specialists in putting together tailor-made rail tours of Britain and as such have created a small selection of rail tours dedicated to exploring Wales. The mountainous landscapes of this little nation restrict the reaches of the rail network but ensure that almost any rail journey through Wales is crammed with spectacular vistas; your rail tour of Wales enables you sit back and soak up the views as you glide between overnight destinations.
Wales is an excellent destination to explore by rail; the Welsh capital city of Cardiff is superbly connected lying just over two hours from London by train whilst deeper in to central and North Wales you’ll find a host of stunningly beautiful rail routes. The Heart of Wales line runs for 121 miles through the mountains of central Wales, the Conwy Valley line runs in to the Snowdonia national Park whilst the Cambrian line takes you to the remote North West of Wales. Crossing historic viaducts, disappearing through mountain tunnels and passing over the rolling hills of the England/Wales border marches, each journey will offer a wealth of treasures with a host of undiscovered, quaint towns and villages awaiting your overnight stays. As with the rest of the Britain rail network, Welsh trains generally offer excellent services adhering promptly to timetables and with comfortable on-board facilities.
As with our rail trips across Britain, your adeo Travel Wales tour comes inclusive of your daily rail travel, via the official Britrail programme, your overnight accommodation and our adeo Travel document package. We hand-pick your overnight accommodation assuring it is conveniently located in the heart of each destination and conveniently positioned not only for the railway station but also for onward daily sightseeing.
