The International Steam Pages


UK Steam Rallies

If you want to see Britain at its best visit one of the many Steam Rallies held each year. That's not my opinion, it's Yuehong's, she can't get enough of them at the moment although I am sure the novelty will wear off. Of course, these days they all tag on "country fair" and / or "vintage transport" to broaden the attraction and its appeal. However, given the nature of this site you will find only steam power in these pages. I had planned to introduce Yuehong to this phenomenon in 2012 but the generally wet weather and other business meant it was put off until 2013, since when we have made up for lost time. Initially not having a car of our own, we employed a little bit of cunning to get to these public transport free zones cheaply. Later we took advantage of competitive weekend hire car rates to travel further from our base in West Gloucestershire. Choose the rally you are interested in which will generally take you to a further index page. Within each linked page click on a thumbnail for a larger image. Then click again to return to the previous page.

This page was originally created for our 2013 visits, but as they continue into 2017 and it seems likely we shall keep going beyond, follow the links below to find individual reports:

There are also many videos on my YouTube channel, check out https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZWKiKiRxGhETC_oeg63248P0f4zBFiPs. (Fortunately it's a clickable link!)
