Take a family trip back in time on a beautiful steam engine.

Steam trains have been around for several hundred years and were a key component of the industrial revolution. They don't call it The Golden Age of Steam for nothing! 

Sit back and relax as your steam engine meanders through unspoiled British countryside, where you really feel like you’re experiencing something from a bygone era. These locomotives have been carefully looked after and restored. They look absolutely incredible when you consider how old they are. Any families of train enthusiasts, or just a family looking for an enjoyable leisurely day out, will really enjoy this wholesome day on the tracks.

At many of the locations, you will be given a rover ticket. This enables you to hop on and off and enjoy venturing into different parts of the local area, where there are often various activities on offer. Other locations offer a return ticket along the line, where you’ll see a huge array of different views. Some locations even have an onsite train museum, where learning about the history of travelling by steam really goes into overdrive.

These steam train trips and railway attractions are often run by volunteers and you can really feel the heart and soul they put into running these days and how proud they are of the steam engines in their fleet.

Lovely family outing
We enjoyed our trip on the Nene Valley Railway with our 5 yo daughter. Was bought for us as a Christmas gift. Interesting things to see at Wansford, lovely staff/ volunteers. Nice ride down into Peterborough & back, we didn't get off at the in between stations as we are local to the area. Yummy food in the cafe.
