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. Some locations offer a whole day rover ticket, enabling you to be able to stop off en route to enjoy some sightseeing or a picnic. At others, your ticket is valid for a return journey.

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

Great place to visit

Certainly lots to see and the helpful and friendly staff made my visit a pleasure. After having the full english breakfast (very good) we took a ride on the train, remembering the carriages of old and the multiples of swinging doors they used to have. The layout was good with a viewing platform to workshop. It is great to see the level of enthusiasm in maintaining the well kept railway, engines and buildings its very clean and well run and we would return for a repeat experience, but would call first to check steam was running and not halted due to track fire hazards of extra dry weather. Didn't matter to me diesel was fine im glad common sense was applied and backed up by fire brigade. I can return for a steam ride next time knowing it has not been fire damaged.

Great little railways of Britain

Some dear friends bought my husband and myself a Steam Railway gift token. We decided to use it to visit Wales and chose the Llanberis Railway to use the gift. The experience was really excellent and both the railway and the area of Wales it is located in were picturesque. I would definitely recommend similar experiences to others.

Memorable Day

My family throughout the generations have been railway workers and my dad constantly tells me how he walked over three fields every day to catch a steam train to take him to school. Nene Valley Railway was the perfect solution for a Xmas Present, close by and full of nostalgia. We arrived early and had breakfast at the station before having a wander around the yards and workshop seeing trains ranging from Thomas the Tank to an engine used in a Bond movie. All volunteers and everyone happy to chat! The seven mile track took us into Peterborough with stops off on the way, a walk around a reserve, model railways and museum. Unfortunately there was a fire on the track that stopped the steam train running and left us stranded for an hour or two, meaning only a diesel could pick us up at the end of the day, never dampened the day it just gave us the chance to have another ice cream!! All in all a fantastic day that took my dad down memory lane!!!

Set in lovely scenery.

This was bought as a Christmas present. So we thought we would go to the train ride at LLanberis north Wales as we had never been to north Wales. It could not have worked out better. We went at end of June 2018.The weather was beautiful and the scenery was spectacular set in Snowdonia and the train ride travels around the lake there so relaxing and beautiful. Definitely would go again.
