Strawberry CREAM TEA

Synonymous with Wimbledon and the tournament in the 150th anniversary year... an afternoon Strawberry Cream Tea on Sunday 15 July could be a good way to commemorate the last day of the tennis - as you travel gently along the foothills of the Chiltern Hills.

Sit back and relax in the Afternoon Tea Car on the 16.30 departure from Chinnor as the lovely views gradually open out to reveal the Vale of Aylesbury and Whiteleaf Cross in the distance.

Includes locally baked scones from the Cornfield Bakery, Roddas’ Clotted Cream and local strawberries, fresh butter and strawberry jam. Everything is served on our GWR Hotels crockery with your choice of tea, coffee, or soft drink.


Tickets and reservations in the Afternoon Tea Car must always be pre-booked on the steam-hauled 16.30 departure. Tickets often sell out quickly and so do please obtain yours as soon as possible.

Booking information

  1. Prices shown below INCLUDE your Travel Tickets, Reservations and Strawberry Cream Teas. Many of our patrons also enjoy travelling on the train before taking their Cream Teas in the Afternoon Tea Car and your travel tickets are valid all day long - so please do come along earlier and take any additional trips along the line in our unreserved accommodation, if you wish! 
  2. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements or mobility difficulties. We are sorry that our volunteers are unable to provide Vegan or Gluten Free Strawberry Cream Teas - we do try so very hard to please, but it's just something we have found we cannot do very well - however you are welcome to travel with friends and family and provide your own food - there is no extra charge and we will provide you with complimentary tea, coffee etc (call 07979 055366, 10.00-16.00 hours for info).
