Steam Train Ride for Two
Take in the British countryside aboard a wonderful steam train
Enjoy the evocative experience of a steam train ride as you roll through the countryside in Victorian style. Your journey brings history to life and gives you a real sense of what it would have been like to travel by train in the golden age of steam. You’ll notice that many stations retain original features, some even have museums where you can learn about the history of the area and the role that steam travel has played. When the guard appears and the whistle blows, settle in your seat and enjoy the unmistakable sight, sound and smell as the train leaves the station.
This experience offers a choice of steam trains at stations across the UK. Some locations offer a whole day rover ticket whilst at others your ticket is valid for a return journey and you may be able to stop off en-route to enjoy some sightseeing or a picnic. Please note that the Cumbria location is a narrow gauge railway.
