I booked a steam rail tour from Paddington to the Cotswolds to a Christmas market & return on steam train. I booked first class because you get a few more extras with that. Wasn't cheap but was really looking forward to it. The train was early start from Paddington so I thought I'd book an overnight stay so we could... More

We had a very pleasant day trip on the The Hadrian trip in early October. This had been rescheduled from earlier in the year due to cancellation because of issues with track etc. The day itself was helped by good weather I do how we think that if we had gone earlier in the year it would have been better...

This is our second trip with the Railway touring Company, and I suspect that there will be more to follow. We travelled first class which means we had tea /coffee Danish and an optional extra bacon roll (stone cold and not worth £3.50) and finger sandwiches and scone with clotted cream and jam on the return journey (nice fresh sandwiches)...

Also went on the Bernese Oberland tour, which was superb from start to finish. The trip was amazingly good value for money, the pass gave unlimited travel in the region and the hotel was superbly situated. It was obvious that our guide knew the area well and the whole trip passed very smoothly with a varied, fun and interesting set... More

As I’m an old steam nut, my wife booked a surprise trip for me on the Cotswold Venturer. She found the on-line booking process very easy, and when she phoned up with a few queries the member of staff was very helpful. When the email confirmation arrived, it showed the start time had been changed to an hour earlier than... More

We travelled as a family on The Cotswold Venturer on a beautiful Autumn day to Worcester. We were treated to Premier Class for a special celebration which was well worth it. The staff were courteous, professional and throroughly attentive both out and back and they made my kids feel welcome on the train. The carriages although old are well maintained,... More
