There's nothing quite like gliding through stunning countryside from the comfort of a steam train, and it will come as no surprise that this method of transport is often associated with the golden age of travel. What's even better is that we can still do this today!
In our modern era of immediacy and convenience, where we need to get places as quickly as possible and must have everything now, the notion of steam travel doesn't quite seem to fit in. However, this is the appeal. Slowing down is one of life's joys and what better way to do it? Making the journey the focus of a holiday, rather than the final destination, we give ourselves much needed time – time to observe, to relax, to think and to simply enjoy the experience.
If the sound of this is making you want to pack your bags and hop aboard a steam train, we have a selection of holidays on offer that include the opportunity to do just that.
Why not embrace the beauty of Scotland and opt for one of our norther steam train holidays? Choose from our Classic Scottish Steam Break, our Scenic Scottish Railways trip or our new Caledonian Days holiday. If you'd rather explore England or Wales by rail, how about our Steam Trains of Yorkshire tour or our new Steam Trains of Wales holiday. The choice is yours!
