Description

Take a journey back in time and enjoy a fun-filled, nostalgic day out with this Steam Train Experience for Two.

This majestic vehicle has been around for over 200 years and was a key part in the growth of the Industrial Revolution. Seeing these trains up close and in all their glory brings a real sense of history to your day.

Britain boasts more railway attractions per square mile than any other country in the world. And with 100 heritage railways, 60 steam museum centres and 700 operational engines, all supported by an legion of 23,000 enthusiastic volunteers, a day out on a steam train offers people the chance to savour a bygone age of riding aboard a lovingly preserved locomotive.

Unlike the usual trip on commuter trains, this is one train journey you will not want to hurry by quickly. Instead, sit back and relax and enjoy the ride as you meander through some of the most glorious and unspoiled parts of the English countryside.

This is a fantastic day out for everyone, and with a choice of scenic locations to choose from is a great way to see different parts of the country while travelling in style.

Please note: If the Steam train is unavailable for reasons beyond the control of the venue it will be replaced by a Diesel train.

A great day out

I had this as a gift at Christmas. We had a great day at the Nene Valley railway and our afternoon tea was very nice! I would also like to extend my thanks to the staff at Activity Superstore for sorting out the problem when the Nene Valley cancelled our original booking. Fantastic customer service.

Steam train journey

Our voucher was for steam train ride with afternoon tea but restricted available throughout the year i.e. one Sunday each month for afternoon tea aspect. Recipients of vouchers need to be aware that "what's on the tin" isn't necessarily what they get. We had to split our treat into two separate dates. We did have an enjoyable day on the steam train and a lovely afternoon tea but would have liked it on the train journey.
