Our 12 mile heritage railway line, complimented by our extensive range of locomotives, carriages and freight vehicles, provides the ideal opportunity for those who are looking for that little extra something, either for a special occasion, a little self-indulgence or a corporate function.

The railway offers packages to suit virtually all interests and budgets ranging from a short but exclusive trip along the railway right up to elite Pullman style travel experiences, suitable for entertaining clients, colleagues, family or friends.
We are able to provide a whole range of high class catering options from canapés and simple finger buffets through to five course à la carte menus.

If you fancy something just that little bit different to celebrate a wedding, birthday, retirement, corporate function or just to have a fantastic day out why not give us a call, we would be happy to organise a trip to remember. Please contact the General Manager at for more information.
