The Steam Heritage Guide

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

The 2019 edition will be available from late March 2019.

With 164 pages, listing around 950 museums and other attractions, as well as some 1,500 events, for over 50 years the Steam Heritage Guide has provided a great resource for the entire preservation scene covering all aspects of our heritage.


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.

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.
