A not so Brief Encounter!
This site is owned and edited by Jools Stone and Kirsty Knaggs. We’re a couple of British freelance travel writers and train travel enthusiasts based in Brighton, England. Believe it or not, we genuinely first met on a train station platform way back in 2001.
We finally got engaged in 2010 on board the Venice Simplon Orient Express to Paris no less, which we think – and we hope you agree – makes us the perfect ambassadors for the romance of modern-day rail travel!
This very site was inspired not only by our shared love of train travel and rail holidays, but also our dream to stage our own railway wedding one day in the not-too-distant future.
In fact, we love the idea of railway weddings so much that we have another site dedicated just to that. It has everything you need to make your own train-themed wedding dreams come true, from railway wedding venues to suppliers of vintage and retro clothes and accessories to add the finishing touch to your special day. Come and say hello at www.railwayweddings.com
We look forward to welcoming you on board our journey to discover the best trains and train hotels across the globe!
Happy trails on rails. 🙂
Jools & Kirsty
