The Steam Heritage Guide Cover

The only comprehensive guide to Britain's Transport & Industrial Heritage Museums, Railways and Events

For over 50 years, the Steam Heritage Guide has provided a resource for the entire UK preservation scene and all aspects of our heritage. With around 950 museums, heritage railways and other attractions and 1,500 events listed, it is Britain's most comprehensive guide to the heritage market.

  • Easy to use design and layout with information clearly labelled
  • Museum and attraction listings by region to make it easy to find nearby places of interest when visiting an area
  • Index of museums and sites of interest alphabetically and by type of attraction
  • Steam rallies and heritage events for the whole year
  • Full colour throughout

If you are going to a steam rally or taking a holiday to visit heritage attractions, make sure you take the Steam Heritage Guide.
