About Steam Train Trips Experiences

There is just something about travelling on a vintage steam train that is unmatched by any other form of heritage travel. It's an evocation back to a golden age when locomotives like Flying Scotsman and Mallard proudly sped along lines running the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, bringing travel to many parts of society for the first time in the process, as well as the rapid progression of the Industrial Revolution.

In fact, call us sentimental old fools, but we'd go so far as to say that there's nothing which quite touches the majesty and romanticism of boarding a faithfully restored carriage on a passenger train pulled by a classic locomotive.

Ideal for those connoisseurs of locomotion looking for a day out with a difference, it will instantly evoke the sound, smells and sights of the 20th Century on a vintage steam train or diesel train, and zoom through the great British countryside on board a hauled passenger train!

Where Can I Go On a Steam Train Trip?

We're proud to offer some of the most glorious stretches of lines all around the UK at a variety of preserved heritage railways, most of which are run by a faithful team of volunteers and experts and rely on donations to keep running.

In the South East of England, there's the East Kent Railway, running from its main terminus at Shepherdswell deep in the heart of the Garden of England, all the way through to Eythorne, which also offers the unique opportunity to, with 1:1 instruction, drive a diesel train for yourself as well!

The East Somerset Railway, running between Cranmore and Mendip Vale in the Somerset countryside, runs many of our most popular steam train trip packages, with Day Rover and Family Rover tickets available that are great value for money, as well as the chance to board special Cream Tea trains that are perfect for celebrating any special occasion.

Or for a trip that combines steam train travel with an adventure out on the water, why not book onto our Sea Train Adventure? You'll get to spend the day exploring the Jurassic Coast in the South West of England, heading to the charming seaside town of Poole, where you'll board a return trip on a boat to Swanage, where you'll discover Corfe or Noreen and their free museums - as well as taking some sun and some ice creams in. It's the perfect day out for the summer!

Booking a Steam Train Trip

Whether it's to surprise a bonafide steam train enthusiast, or celebrate a birthday, anniversary or even arrange a fun school holiday activity, there's so much versatility that a Steam Train Trip offers.
