Retro Railtours

Welcome to Retro Railtours

Proud to support:
We are proud to support the Forget Me Not Trust

We hope you are keeping safe during these unprecedented times. As with nearly every other aspect of life, Covid 19 has impacted the travel and tourism sector dramatically, and we have now been unable to run any trains for over a year.

We are keeping a close eye on the latest government advice, and are very keen to get back on the rails as soon as possible. It goes without saying that we will only run our trains once we are absolutely confident of our passenger's health and wellbeing, whilst keeping the famous 'Retro' atmosphere on-board.

There's most definitely light at the end of the Covid tunnel now, and we'll be back and running our charter trains as soon as we can. I'm sure you're all looking forward a lovely pint of Retro Rail Ale - and we can't wait to be serving them again!

We shall look forward to welcoming you on board at some point in 2021. Keep safe, and see you all soon.

Retro Railtours have been operating day trip charter trains to a wide variety of Great British destinations since 2008. In the past decade, we have travelled to all parts of the Great British rail network, visiting seaside resorts, cities and special events. Past destinations include The Lake District, Edinburgh (for the Edinburgh Festival), Southend (for Southend Airshow), Canterbury and Bath Spa.

We use classic British Rail carriages, with padded seats and full buffet facilities - which are all too often missing from modern service trains. Most of our trains also feature our luxury silver service Premier Dining service. Our aim is to take you back to the Golden Age of rail travel, where you enjoy the journey as much as the destination!

We look forward to welcoming you on board!
