Just a stone's throw from London, and yet in a whole other era, lies the Epping Ongar Railway. Every weekend, the longest heritage railway in Essex runs steam train rides on what used to be the old Central line tracks. Booze, bars and even vintage buses complete the line up, making it an ideal day out for history-loving Londoners. The best part? It's easily accessible via the tube network, making it the perfect blend of transport old and new. Toot toot!
