Steam Train Dining Trips

When you think of steam train dining, it immediately evokes a romantic vision of times gone by, when people got dressed up to take a gentle steam train trip and the bustling platform was a fascinating place to be. Even today there's that undeniable air of romance and indulgence if you're lucky enough to be a passenger on a special excursion on a train pulled by a steam locomotive. These delightful, nostalgic days out let you climb aboard a steam train, relax, enjoy the scenery, and of course, a rather special meal.

Steam train trips are perfect for families and friends alike and when combined with a lunch or dinner, never cease to be popular. We've got all sorts of steam train experiences and rides to suit all budgets, right up to trips on the British Pullman, the sister train to the Venice-Simplon Orient-Express. Other experience days are available from IntotheBlue.  Read more...

There's no denying it, steam train dining is one of our most popular activity days out. Age seems to be irrelevant as everyone from grandparents to little kids love a steam train. And you certainly don't have to fall into the train spotter category to appreciate these steam-hauled trips - and if you like your food, it's even better!

We offer a very comprehensive timetable of dining train departures from various heritage steam railways around the country. If you fancy a bit of family day tripping, we can highly recommend the luncheon trains. This means you can get to the station in the morning so you have time to look around before your departure. Then after your lunch on the move, you have the rest of the afternoon to enjoy all the railway has to offer too (and almost all have museums, accessible loco sheds etc).

The ultimate dining trip is the Sunday lunch. What could be better than the quintessential British meal where all the family gets together over Yorkshire puds and gravy, combined with the comfort of an armchair seat with a view, as you trundle along the tracks past some of the country's finest countryside?

If you like the idea of an evening trip out on the track, we've got a whole load of dinner steam train excursions too. Spend a delightful evening in good company as you board the train and settle down ready for the view to come to you, whilst your evening meal is served at your table. Book in summer and you'll watch the sunset as you steam along, go in the winter and feel all cocooned and cosy as you enjoy your hot meal.

Whenever and wherever you choose to go, steam train dining makes for a superb day out for all. Whether you spend an hour or so tucking into afternoon tea on a steam train, or dine in utter style on a Pullman-style coach with train stewards dressed in smart suits attending to your every need, you will appreciate the food, the service and the journey itself. All steam ahead for the next dining excursion near you!
