Mince Pie Specials KIDS £1

After Christmas, try a Mince Pie Special on four steam train operating days and blow away those post-Santa blues!

Our steam-hauled trains run on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday - 29 to 31 December and New Year's Day 01 January 2019, so 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, which will all be served at your seat during the journey. What's more two children can travel for just £1 EACH when accompanied by another fare-paying Adult, Senior or National Railcard ticket holder. P.S. The steam heating will be on in the carriages and we reckon there will be plenty of seats available.

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