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 will be sure to experience the grandeur of Trevithick’s invention.

Steam Train Days Out



Hop aboard with a steam train day trip for two. 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.

Nene Valley Railway (Peterborough, Cambridgeshire)

Holly from National Accounts, May 2018

We really enjoyed our day out on Nene Valley's steam train. The conductor was very knowledgeable and entertaining, having us laughing loads throughout the journey. He also let us try on his hat! The team were also very friendly and more than happy to answer any questions we had and we did have quite a few. I was also really impressed to learn they are mostly volunteers! We got to see the beautiful Peterborough countryside and had the chance to stop at different train stations to take photos of the steam engine and explore the traditional carriages which have been really well maintained. We were very lucky to visit on a day with such good weather, too. Although we were sad to see Thomas the Tank Engine was not feeling too well we wished him a swift recovery! I would definitely recommend this experience as a unique gift for someone, especially if they have an interest in Britain's heritage, or even for yourself if you fancy a day out with a difference.

Top Tip
Bring along some snacks for journey or visit the Turntable Café at Wansford Station for a home made sausage roll!

We received the tickets as a gift from our daughter. We went on rather a wet and miserable day but that didn't dampen our enjoyment. The sights and smells of a steam train are like nothing else and takes you back to a more relaxed, less hurried era. Would thoroughly recommend this trip.

This was brought for my husband as a present. I was lucky enough he asked e to join him. The day was brilliant from the activation of the gift to the staff at the railway station. Although we didn't get to ride a steam train we were lucky enough to get the diesel train car...absolutely chafed. Will do again..

The ELR serves the bury and a number of its neighbouring smaller towns. Bury itself has loads to offer but you can get on and off as much as you want. We visited Heywood, and Rawtenstall but you could also go to Ramsbottom and soon the line will extend towards Rochdale. In my opinion it should be reopened given where it serves it would never have been closed if it was in greater London.

We were bought this voucher as a Christmas present and used it on our local steam railway - the East Lancashire Railway - paying extra to take our two grandchildren. The trip on this railway is a consistently good experience and didn't disappoint this time. The scenery is lovely and the staff very friendly. The experience voucher was used for the trip with ease.
