From The Editor

The Steam Heritage Guide

In 2010 the Guide was taken over by a new team who are building on the achievements of former Editor & Publisher Chris Deith who founded the guide in the 1960s.

With over 25 years experience in the heritage magazine business, as editor and now owner of Vintage Spirit magazine, my team and I are always developing this publication. We continue to visit many of the attractions listed as well as lots of events. The combination of the team's experience in the preservation scene and publishing background adds that personal understanding to help all users get the most out of the Guide.

We hope you find it useful and enjoy visiting the many attractions available.

With best wishes.

Brian Gooding

Britain's most comprehensive guide to the heritage and preservation scene

The 2014 edition will be published in mid-March 2014.

With 148 pages – more than ever before - listing over 900 museums and other attractions as, well as some 1,300 events, for almost 50 years, the Steam Heritage Guide has provided a resource for the entire preservation scene and all aspects of our heritage.

Convenient

The pocket-size (A5 - 148x210mm) Guide easily fits into a pocket, bag or vehicle glove compartment, so the information is quickly at hand when you are out and about. Despite this internet age, guides such as this are still popular and provide a consistent and valuable resource, especially while travelling or for planning weekend breaks or holidays.

Easy to use

  • 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
  • Full colour throughout

Easy reference to plan your visits

The guide contains easy to understand icons and information to help you plan your visit to any of the museums and attractions so you know if there is parking, refreshments, souvenir shop and if it can cater for disabled access.

Useful Index of Attractions

Find the information your way, either by the standard regional layouts, by the alphabetical or county indexes.

Coming soon...

From Summer 2014, we are providing a fully searchable online version of the Steam Heritage Guide through this website. This will back up the already useful printed guide with more detailed information on each attraction and event. It will be searchable by region, location, type of attraction or by name to make it easy for you to find any information on the whole transport and industrial preservation scene.

In addition to the title, brief description and visitor information already displayed in the printed guide, the online listings will give us the opportunity to provide more detailed descriptions, photographs, map locations plus access to vouchers and offers and any latest updates.

For more information on this new service keep an eye on the Steam Heritage blog and sign up to our newsletter (panel on the home page) to make sure you don't miss this great new resource.
