Visit Windsor aboard the Royal Windsor Steam Express

About

Established in 1999 Steam Dreams Rail Co is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and to mark this special occasion they have launched The Royal Windsor Steam Express, an exciting itinerary departing from London Waterloo.

Sit back and relax as you head off on the first ever regular steam train service from London Waterloo to Windsor and let the romance of steam travel whisk you away to a bygone era.

Starting from London Waterloo the Royal Windsor Steam Express passes many of London's famous landmarks including the London Eye and Houses of Parliament. As you head towards the leafy suburbs, crossing the River Thames at least once, you will pass reservoirs and lakes to reach Windsor & Eton Riverside Station, designed by William Tite for the London & South Western Railway (LSWR) as a royal station. 

On this one-way trip from London to Windsor, passengers can choose from three classes of travel: Pullman Style Dining with a Champagne brunch served on board or if you prefer the flexibility of buying from our on-board range of snacks and drinks, First Class or Standard Class.

Once in historic Windsor, choose from a variety of wonderful attractions including Windsor Castle, river trips, open top bus rides and walking tours.  The town is full of great shops and fantastic places to eat.

Fares from £35. Trains depart every Tuesday three times a day from 4th June – 3rd September.
