Mothering Sunday CREAM TEAS

Every Mum travels FREE with any accompanied ticket holder on Mothering Sunday 26 March 2017, and she also receives a small posy of flowers with the compliments of the Railway's volunteers.

 

Delicious cream teas are served in the Afternoon Tea Cars on the 13.30, 15.00 and 16.30 departures from Chinnor and advance booking for combined TRAVEL TICKETS & CREAM TEAS is now available below.

 

All Cream Teas are served on our GWR Hotels Dept crockery - Adults enjoy two locally procured and freshly baked scones, deliciously thick clotted cream and butter, plus strawberry and other preserves, together with your choice of tea, coffee, or soft drink. Please note that Child prices include one scone only.

 

With lovely views gradually opening out to Whiteleaf Cross in the distance and the Red Kites often whirling overhead, it is surely going to be the perfect Mothering Sunday treat.

 

When you book online your seat reservations will be included for the Afternoon Tea Car and our stewards will show you to your table on boarding. Also, if you would like to make additional trips along the line then your tickets are valid all day long (we always have at least one coach with unreserved seats available).

 

Reservations for Cream Teas often sell out nearer the time, so do please order yours soonest!

 

There is a large free car park (with CCTV), tea room and souvenir shop at Chinnor station.

 

N.B. If you are looking for our non-dining seats on Mothering Sunday trains, then please see here.
