The Steam Train company has been short-listed for Best Rail Holiday Provider in the inaugural Silver Travel Awards to recognise excellence in travel and tourism for the over 50s.
Steam Dreams, which operates an eight or nine day Cathedrals Explorer holiday around the British Isles each year, as well as a shorter three or four day tour to the English Riviera, Edinburgh or the Lake District, are delighted to be nominated for the award.
Founder, Marcus Robertson, said: “We have just marked 15 years of Steam Dreams and are thrilled to have been given another reason to celebrate. The concept of Steam Dreams holidays, such as The Cathedrals Explorer and The Atlantic Coast Express, has always been to combine the charm of steam train travel with attractive destinations, good food and excellent service. We continue to strive to offer new itineraries and improve our service wherever possible, whilst keeping the essential friendly and personal touches that make Steam Dreams so special. This nomination is a testament to our achievements as a small family business and the loyalty of our customers.”
