Overview

All aboard! Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime when you travel back in time with our steam train experience for two.

Discover Majestic Steam Train Rides



Steam trains are an iconic part of British history, dating back over 200 years to 1804 when Cornishman Richard Trevithick invented the steam engine. Over the next 40 years, Trevithick’s idea was developed into a network covering over 2,440 miles and ferrying more than 30 million passengers within the UK.

Today, Britain boasts more railway attractions per square mile than any other country in the world. With over 100 heritage railways, 700 working steam trains, and 60 steam train museums, you can experience the grandeur of Trevithick’s invention.

Steam Train Days Out



Hop aboard with a steam train day trip. As you travel through rolling hills and lush fields, you’ll feel like you've stepped back in to a time when life was simpler. So, sit back and relax as you meander through unspoilt English countryside.

Steam train rides are an excellent way to make memories that will last a lifetime. Choose from a range of scenic locations and experience different parts of England. Some locations offer a whole day rover ticket so you can hop on and off along the route - perfect for sightseeing, enjoying a coffee at a local cafe or having a picnic.

Disclaimer: if the steam train is unavailable for reasons beyond the control of the venue, it may be replaced by a diesel train.

It was a great ride,, can understand now how long it used to take passengers to make a train journey years ago. Also it was relaxing as you could just sit back and enjoy it.

We spent a day at the railway, travelling the line and visiting the museum. There's a lot to do and see here but Swanwick Jcn site's Matthew Kirtley building (exhibiton hall) and the West Shed are absolute musts if you want to savour restoration at it's best. The exhibition hall contains beuatifully restored railway engines, carriages, wagons and artefacts. The West Shed is home to the Princess Royal Trust and also contains beuatifully restored carriages and locomotives. The cafe is very good and the site offers plenty of other activities. Above all the staff are very helpful and the service was excellent

The experience was bought for us as a present and we took our young grandson with us. Unfortunately the station at Llanberis was closed for the season so we took the short and pleasant walk across the field to Gilfach Ddu. We took the opportunity to have a coffee in the cafe before our trip and were impressed by the facilities available. The train journey itself was fabulous. What stood out for us the most was the friendly and helpful attitude of all members of staff - particularly the guard of the train and also huge thanks to the engine driver who encouraged our grandson to join him on the footplate to have his photo taken. A truly memorable experience which we intend to repeat with our whole family next summer. Thank you
