Grab the wheel and drive your own steam engine

Bath, Somerset

Bring history to life and drive a traditional steam engine at the Avon Valley Railway for a day.

Take a once in a lifetime opportunity to realise your dream of driving an historic steam locomotive at the beautifully restored Victorian station, Avon Valley Railway. 

Take control and drive the engine along our three mile heritage line between Bristol & Bath. You’ll find out how the locomotive works, learn how to keep the fire going, and then take to the controls yourself as you drive it through the beautiful Avon Valley. 

Afterwards, relax on the lawns as you sit back and watch the  restored locomotives pass by in steaming splendour.
