Steam and Diesel Train Experiences

Enjoy a classic steam train ride

If you use public transport a lot, you might forget that trains were once a high-class way to get around. When first introduced, train travel, like the original plane travel, was deemed a very luxurious way to travel. If you're looking to return to that kind of travel, take a look through our list of classic steam train experiences. One of these special train trips from standard UK railway stations will give you the chance to really enjoy the journey as well as the destination!

We have a range of options for nostalgic steam train rides. Book a trip from a variety of UK locations and enjoy the view from your traditional carriage. If you're interested in driving the train we also have experiences that allow you to do that too! It makes a great present for a train spotter or just someone with an interest in trains from the good old days.

The big name in luxury train travel is the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Although the original journey was from Paris to Istanbul, luxury rail tours can be taken in the UK on sister trains Belmond British Pullman and Northern Belle in the form of first class passenger trips. Take an extravagant train trip and have a champagne cocktail aboard one of the true icons of luxury leisure travel.

If a drink doesn't sound like quite enough for you, check out the other train experiences we currently have available. Available across England, as well as in Scotland and Wales, we offer places on pleasure train rides with a delicious dining experience and drinks included. Culinary options range from afternoon tea to a full 5-course meal with champagne, depending on how extravagant you’d like to be!
