  • About

    Pulled by an amazing steam locomotive, riding in the Cathedrals Express carriage is a real treat for two. Soak in the British countryside on a range of trips (each running at least once or twice a year). Be completely spoilt for choice with all the wonderful cities you can visit from departure points across the South, the Midlands and London. Cities include Bath, Bristol, Oxford, Canterbury, Lincoln, York, Salisbury, Carlisle, Ely, Exeter, Bournemouth, Litchfield, Shrewsbury or Weymouth. Whether you want to go sightseeing, shopping or grab a bite to eat, there is something to suit all tastes and plenty of time to explore your chosen city during the day. After this afternoon day out, return to the train and relax on the journey home. This is a real treat for culture vultures and an opportunity to spend top quality time together.

    • Experience a fantastic trip on a historic steam locomotive
    • Visit one of England's loveliest cities
    • Enjoy an afternoon touring your chosen destination
    • Relax, sit back and enjoy

    A Steam Dream without Steam can't be more disappointing than this! And to be told by station Tannoy just minutes before the train's departure was gutting. Hundreds of people were devastated. A class 1 FIASCO. A lot of money and effort totally wasted and no back-up plan. I'll think twice before considering another trip - if I ever do!

    Sadly, not as advertised on the tin.

    Excellent food; friendly, attentive staff and punctual trains made for a superb day visit to Stratford-upon-Avon. With the locomotive, No. 61306 "Mayflower", speeding along at its permitted 75mph, the whole journey was a great experience. I would recommend it without hesitation.
