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.

Fabulous trip down memory lane

My husband received the voucher as a gift. We had the most amazing day out and he took loads of photographs (his hobby). Cannot fault the venue, it's staff or it's facilities. I would definitely recommend a visit but cannot recommend this product as it costs a lot more to buy the voucher than just buying the tickets on-site on the day.

My 6 years old son loves Trains especially Steam so when our friend bought us an experience he was thrilled! We had such a lovely day and met some great people with the same interests that taught him a lot, there was a train with a miniature railway and lots of different trains and the staff were amazing with my son. We even saw Thomas in the workshop! Fantastic and well worth the money !

A great little railway

I was bought a trip on the Churnet Valley Line last Christmas and got to use it in July of this year. It is a lovely line amidst the pretty Staffordshire Moorlands scenery. The train ride was excellent whilst the Staff (all volunteers, I assume) were all so enthusiastic and clearly enjoyed working on the line. They could not have been nicer or more helpful. They were all superb.
