Sit back, relax and take in the beautiful British countryside

Can you imagine sitting in a train carriage, listening to the steam engine powering you through the beautiful British countryside with a rush of nostalgia filling your body?

If this sounds as great to you as it does to us, then Vintage Trains would be an ideal day out in the Midlands.

They offer a range of steam trains which run on Britain’s mainline railway, so you can travel up to Llandudno, Skegness, York and many more locations across the country. There are so many routes to choose between, that wherever you fancy going, we're sure you'll find the perfect option with Vintage Trains.

What's on

If you see yourself as a bit of a Sherlock Holmes or Hercule Poirot, ‘Murder on the Shakespeare Express’ will be right up your street. Bring little ones along for the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party where they can meet characters from Alice in Wonderland as you zip through the Warwickshire countryside.

Maybe a day at the beach is something you’re looking forward to? Have a look at ‘The Seaside Express’ and arrive in style. Enjoy up to five hours exploring seaside towns such as Skegness, Llandudno, Scarborough and Weston Super Mare.

There’s nothing quite like walking around a Christmas market, all wrapped up, listening to Christmas songs with a hot drink in your hand. Head to the Victorian Christmas market at Melton Mowbray, where you can spend five hours perusing Victorian stalls, hearing brass bands and so much more.

The Shakespeare Express

If you’re after a bit of history, culture and gorgeous rolling countryside, then a trip on ‘The Shakespeare Express’, which runs between Birmingham to Stratford-upon-Avon would be ideal for you.

Explore the beautiful town of Stratford and visit The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust or sail down the River Avon on a river cruise with Avon Boating.

The journey back home will be full of conversation about your experience, and perhaps even plans to book another trip to a different location. We're sure the day will be a hit with the whole family.
