Delights for both young and old. Travelling along the Chiltern foothills with Red Kites whirling overhead and the steam curling lazily past your window is sure to evoke memories of yesteryear for some; but for others, a steam hauled train ride is just a wholly wonderful and completely new travel experience!
Make up a Party of 8 (or more). There are great rates for groups of 8 or more and better still, groups of 15+ attract even greater savings when you book in advance. We can reserve seats together for you and your party, or you can even book your own carriage depending on how many people are travelling. You could also take advantage of our Afternoon Teas and Ploughman's Lunches; alternatively, Stephanie, our lovely volunteer Catering Manager, will be pleased to discuss her various catering packages with you, including parties for children (and luncheon or tea-boxes made up according to your requirements and age groups, etc). If you would like to know more, make a booking, or if you simply have an idea in mind that you would like to discuss, then please call 07718 003133 (daytime 10.00-17.00).
Tour Operators and Coach Companies. We are delighted that an increasing number of tour operators and coach companies are choosing to include a visit to the railway as part of their programme. Whether you want a block of seats reserved, a complete carriage to yourselves, or even to hire a complete train, then we'll be pleased to meet and exceed your expectations. We are are pleased to offer our onboard catering packages and these include Cream Teas and Ploughman's Lunches too. Chinnor station is just 3 miles from Junction 6 on the M40 and it is easy to reach, plus we have a large parking area which can easily accommodate coaches. Add to this the gentle 7-mile return trip takes 45-50 minutes and it means a trip on the railway is just about the right length of time to fit in with whatever activities you have planned for the rest of your full-day or half-day tour via the Chilterns. Please discuss with us and we will agree generous terms that make your visit both memorable and affordable; for example, if you do not differentiate between various age groups when pricing your tours, then we will quote one single lower price. Your tour guide and driver can of course travel free, or alternatively obtain complimentary refreshments in the Tea Room. To find out more please call 07718 003133 (daytime 10.00-17.00).
