Half-term Thursday KIDS £1 2019

Enjoy a trip behind our heritage steam loco or travel by vintage diesel this Half-term Thursday 11 April 2019. Under 5s travel FREE and those 5-15 yrs go for just £1.

All the while your steam locomotive is lazily billowing steam past your window or the vintage diesel is growling along the line between Chinnor and Princes Risborough and return. With lovely views gradually opening out to Whiteleaf Cross and the Vale of Aylesbury in the distance, plus the Red Kites often whirling overhead, it is surely going to be the perfect Half-term treat.

A through the train catering trolley begins on the 11.00 from Chinnor and will offer throughout the day an at-seat service of paid-for teas, coffees, light refreshments and snacks.

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.

At Chinnor station there is a large FREE car park for train ticket holders - plus a small tea room and souvenir shop is available.
