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.

Nene Valley Railway.

I bought this as a gift for my father for the new year 2017. He went to the Nene Valley with a friend. They had a fantastic day and they said the staff were really excellent and nothing was too much trouble.

A Great Railway Journey!

This trip on the Snowdon Mountain Railway steam engine was given me for a landmark birthday two years ago, and we finally got there this September. It was well worth the wait!

Great day out.

The voucher for a Cream tea on a train was a gift. We were unable to do the trip as it was fully booked so we swapped for a day at Bressingham which was lovely and have booked a cream tea to be taken soon.

Great Day Out

The tickets we had were a present from my daughter for a Steam Train journey for two. My Wife & I chose the Nene Valley Railway. Jess of Activity Superstore very kindly sorted out my online booking blunder & we had an unforgettable day on the Steam Train & various stations on the route. Everyone was so friendly that it made the day even more enjoyable. Would I go again, of course. Would I recommend this to friends, I already have! Many thanks Nene Valley Railway & Activity Superstore

A Brilliant Day Out!

I bought this for a Christmas present and was glad that I did. You need to have an interest in steam trains to enjoy it to the full, but both my wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable day. We had the freedom of the line and so were able to stop off at two of the charming stations along the way. Both stations had features of interest and so we had no difficulty filling the time between trains. The only downside was the traffic on the M6 going home, but there not much that can be done about that!
