Launched in 1999, Steam Dreams was the brainchild of steam train enthusiast Marcus Robertson whose mother wrote the world acclaimed children's stories, The Wombles. As a child Marcus loved the magic of steam travel and the excitement it conjured up as the engine with all its power and glory passed along the British countryside. In the mid 1990's whilst taking his own children on steam trips he realised there were a lot of people like him looking to re-live the nostalgia of steam travel.

In 2000, the first Cathedrals Express train left London for Canterbury. It was an immediate success and the dream was born! Since then things have gone from strength to strength and the company now welcomes over 19,000 passengers on board each year on over 50 trips and the trips stop at over 100 stations across the UK.

All day trip destinations are carefully selected for their cultural and historic appeal. They include some of the UK's finest cathedral cities, most stunning coastal resorts as well as the country's best shopping havens. Each journey is meticulously planned, not only to take in beautiful countryside but also to present the most challenging routes for the many different locomotives. These elements, combined with exceptional on-board menus, ensure that passengers can enjoy the very best of luxury steam travel.
