Meandering through rolling countryside, steam train tours are one of the best ways to experience the UK’s stunning sights.


With The Railway Touring Company, you can choose from departures across the country for a nostalgic day out in the company of a magnificent, historic steam locomotive. Sit back and relax in your plush premier carriage to watch the scenery go by as you enjoy a full English breakfast and, later in the day, a four-course lunch or dinner both silver served at your table. Beautiful destinations to choose from include the historic cities of York, Bath, Worcester or Lincoln, from one of the dramatic rail routes steaming along the Cumbrian coast, into Snowdonia or over the world famous Settle & Carlisle Line, or take a summer seaside steam special to visit Minehead, Swanage, Bournemouth or Weymouth.

We have one prize available to win, comprising of two premier tickets on a UK steam train day trip, worth £518, from The Railway Touring Company.
