The Royal Windsor Steam Express: quite possibly one of the loveliest train trips to take

Posted on 3rd Aug 2021. In , , , , ,


Post-lockdown ‘you’ deserves to travel in style, right? Hell yes, so hop aboard the stunning Royal Windsor Steam Express from Victoria to Windsor this summer for a touch of old world glamour – with a large splash of new world champagne. 

From the 1st June to the 14th September this year, the mega-luxurious Royal Windsor Steam Express will be making trips between Victoria and Windsor and it’s got your name all over it!

The first regular steam-powered rail service from Victoria since 1964, this beautiful train will be running every Tuesday* over the summer for those who love a little luxe as they travel. Passing landmarks such as Chelsea Bridge and crossing over the river Thames, get cosy in the comfort of a stunning period carriage and feast on some of London’s most beautiful landscapes.

Various ticket options and classes are available for this unmissable journey with tickets starting from £25. For the ultimate luxurious experience, book Pullman Style Dining tickets and get the most comfortable seats in gorgeous wood-panelled cabins as well as a Champagne reception (cheers to that). T

ravellers will also enjoy eggs royale on the breakfast departure or a classic cream tea on the afternoon service – now that’s what we call travelling in style. Lady Mary eat your heart out.

Whilst in Windsor you won’t be short on things to do. From a summer picnic in the stunning Great Park to a trip to the historic Windsor Castle, this beautiful town is the perfect place to while away a relaxed morning before hopping aboard the Royal Windsor Steam Express once again and travelling back to reality.
