Nene Valley Railway

The Nene Valley Railway is one of the UK's leading heritage railways. Steam trains and heritage diesels run along the 7.5 mile line between the railway's headquarters at Wansford and Peterborough city centre.

The Peterborough terminus is in easy reach of the city centre and the cathedral, with a history dating back to 654 AD.

The line runs through the Cambridgeshire countryside and stops at Overton and Orton Mere allow passengers to alight and explore Ferry Meadows Country Park and walk along the banks of the River Nene.

The Wansford terminus, with free parking, is a short drive from the A1 and A47 giving easy access to the national motorway network. The Peterborough station, next to Railworld museum, is a 25 minute walk from Peterborough mainline station.

Full directions, and details of intermediate stations, are available on the railway's website.
