Golden Eagle Luxury Trains' 'Best of Britain Steam Tour' takes guests on a lavish adventure that they wouldn't likely be able to experience anywhere else. The epic 14-day tour takes guests on an authentic luxury steam engine ride across the idyllic British countryside, covering over 2,200 miles in celebration of the engine's tenth anniversary.
Though steam engines revolutionized the world economy in the 19th century, technological developments have mostly phased them out of operation. They live on in the form of sleeper trains for luxury travel, though, and that's exactly what the Best of Britain Steam Tour offers for guests. The engine hauls 10 carriages and accommodates up to 38 passengers, who get to stay in impressive Edwardian-style staterooms with en suite bathrooms.
The tour begins in Edinburgh and crosses Britain through Wales down to York, finally circling back to Scotland to finish the trip.
