This extraordinary steam-hauled excursion from London Victoria promises a captivating journey through the picturesque landscapes of Surrey and Hampshire, with a chance to discover the festive charm of the acclaimed Bath Christmas Market.

Step aboard at London Victoria to enter an enchanting world of vintage rail travel. We carve our way south, crossing the Thames to chug out through the suburbs. With London beginning to recede in the distance we pick up speed making our way through Surrey to Hampshire with views of the Solent. The adventure continues through the undulating hills and serene beauty of Wiltshire, before meandering along the splendid countryside of the Avon Valley.

The highlight of the trip awaits in the elegant Georgian City of Bath, where guests can revel in the joy of the festive season. After a wonderful break we meet at the station and will welcome you back on board for our homeward journey. On the return journey we change locomotives at Salisbury; waving goodbye to our steam engine to be whisked home by a vintage diesel.
