Take a journey back in time and enjoy a fun-filled, nostalgic day out with this Family Steam Train Experience.
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 both adults and kids, 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.
When you arrive at the venue, you will need to exchange your voucher at the ticket office for your family steam train tickets. The experience varies depending on the location you choose. Some journeys are return trips while others are all day rovers and you may be able to stop off en route to explore the local area on foot. Depending on the location, you may be able to visit other attractions at the venue such as a steam train museum.
