Whether you are making a long grand tour or just a short break, Europe by Rail is the perfect guide. The book describes over 50 key routes in detail. Together, they span mainland Europe and—brand new for this 16th edition—now also the British Isles. Each route can be followed in its entirety or used as a building block in a longer itinerary. Beyond the main routes you will find worthwhile excursions well off the beaten track. The routes are organized under the following headings:

  • Discover Britain and Ireland
  • A taste of France Through France to Spain 
  • Iberian Connections 
  • The Low Countries and the Rhine 
  • Prussia, Bavaria and beyond 
  • Central Europe 
  • Scandinavian Forays 
  • Alpine Adventures 
  • Roaming Italy 
  • Balkan Journeys 
  • Exploring East 

Written by two highly experienced travelers, Europe by Rail contains useful tips about how to plan your journey, what tickets to buy and where to stop off along the way. There are special sections for holders of rail passes, including Interrail and Eurail, as well as information on night trains. The country guide summarizes key information about traveling by train through each of the four dozen countries listed. Apart from being full of good advice and up-to-date information, Europe by Rail is also a great read with plenty to entertain and inform for armchair travelers. 

Industry Reviews

"The book is an alluIing combination of evocative writing ("Speed soaks up detail as poppies in the fields of Flanders become a red haze") and practical advice. . . . t is also a history of Europe in 50 train routes. --Independent
"There is much guidance on planning, buying tickets and finding accommodation, recommending the best and most user-friendly websites. All in all, this is a fantastic book which is perfect for any traveller, even the armchair variety." --Ilkley Gazette
"Europe By Rail could have been a dry, practical guide and still been an invaluable book, but where the writers really score is in evoking such a strong sense of place. Each route is carefully described with tightly-written guides to and descriptions of the destinations involved that make the fifty route chapters eminently readable as pieces of travel writing in themselves." --Charlie Connelly, author, Attention All Shipping
"The last publication to continue the fine traditions of Thomas Cook, the father of modern tourism whose first travel guide was published in 1873. In short, get on board a European train armed with this guide and you'll be in for a fascinating journey." --Engineering & Technology Magazine
"Each chapter is peppered with insights into culture and heritage, and practical information for making the most out of a journey. . . . A guidebook that proves both inspirational and informative." --Go Eat Do
