Mince Pie Specials KIDS 1

After Christmas, try a Mince Pie Special on our steam train operating days and blow away those post-Santa blues! You can buy your tickets on the day at the station - plenty of seats available if you miss the advance booking deadline and please just come along - but do allow just a few extra minutes to make your purchase please.

Why not take a trip along the Chiltern foothills, see the steam drift lazily past your window - sit back, relax and enjoy the views. Our volunteers will also be delighted to offer you a complimentary hot drink and Mince Pie (or alternative squash and biscuits for younger children) which will all be served at your seat during the journey from Chinnor to Princes Risborough.

What's more two children can travel for just £1 EACH when accompanied by another fare-paying Adult, Senior or National Railcard ticket holder. Also, if you are a local resident in Chinnor (OX39) or Princes Risborough (HP27) and travel after 12.00 hours, then on presentation of proof of residency you could travel at half the full Adult price.

If you are looking for something more to do whilst in Chinnor then see our 'Stroll Around Chinnor Village' guide which includes links to the Wee Bookshop and The Village Centre for food and drink and Bar/Restaurant meals in local pubs; or say visit the local Church and the guide also lists other places that may be of interest.
