The Royal Windsor Steam Express with Windsor Castle in the distance


We look forward to welcoming you on board The Royal Windsor Steam Express for a nostalgic journey by steam train to one of the UK's most popular destinations.

Historic Windsor has much to offer the visitor including boat trips, open top bus tours, the Theatre Royal and a pretty town centre full of traditional shops and pubs.

The trip to Windsor departs twice a day from 10 May to 23 August (excluding 17 May and 7, 14 and 21 June).  Departures at 0900 and 1220.

With three classes of travel to choose from there is something to suit everyone. Enjoy a delicious Champagne Brunch in our Pullman Style Dining carriages or, if you prefer the flexibility of buying from our on-board range of snacks and drinks or bringing your own picnic, First Class with complimentary tea and coffee or Standard Class.  Prices from £39pp.

Departing London Victoria, this 1.5 hour trip (approx.) will head out across London towards the leafy suburbs, crossing the Thames at least once, as well as passing reservoirs and lakes before reaching Windsor & Eton Riverside Station, designed by William Tite for the London & South Western Railway (LSWR) as a royal station.

If you would like to enjoy a leisurely lunchtime circular tour we are also running our Royal Windsor Lunch Tour. Passengers can travel in Pullman Style Dining, our most luxurious carriage, whilst enjoying a delicious 3-course lunch. This special trip departs from London Victoria at 1220 and returns at 15.20.  Price £109pp.

For passengers interested in travelling from Windsor to London Victoria we are offering a one-way ticket in Standard Class only, diesel hauled (no catering included) at 0930 or 1230. Price £25 for adults, £15 for under 16s, £99 for a family of 4.
