The Nene Valley Railway offers a superb day out for all the family from 5s to 95s!

Step back in time as you climb aboard a heritage steam or diesel train.  Relax in our restored wooden panelled coaches or compartments and be taken back to the heyday of the golden age of steam.

The line travels through our tunnel, built in 1845, to the country station at Yarwell on the Northamptonshire border. Use the train as a base to explore stations at Wansford, Ferry Meadows with its country park, Orton Mere and its riverside walks and lakes, and the station in Peterborough where you can take time to explore the Cathedral, resting place of Katherine of Aragon and former resting place of Mary Queen of Scots, which dates back to 654 AD.

NVR are based near Peterborough, close to the boundaries of Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Rutland and Cambridgeshire, the railway’s proximity to both the A1 and A47 means it is within easy reach of the Midlands and beyond. They run a regular steam train service and occasional diesel hauled services.
