Steam & Morning Coffee

Enjoy an extra special treat with Chinnor Railway. 

On the 11.00 departure from Chinnor on 29 Sept, 6 Oct or 20 Oct you can reserve seats in the Cafe Car for the return journey (return service arrives back at Chinnor at 12.00) where we will be serving your choice of freshly brewed tea or coffee and an accompanying savoury scone and butter, plus two mini Danish Pastries per person - all nicely served on our GWR crockery.

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 morning treat.

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.
