Relive the nostalgia of heritage steam and enjoy the elegance of dining on board with a leisurely Sparkling Afternoon Tea made from locally-sourced fayre provided by Ashlea Catering and served on our GWR-monogram crockery. Your experience begins with a warm welcome from our attentive volunteer stewards who will serve you a glass of Sparkling Prosecco or non alcoholic drink - followed by a selection of savouries, sandwiches, scone and cake, plus tea or coffee service.
Board your train at Chinnor, then sit back in your comfortable seat, relax and watch the steam lazily curl past your window as you enjoy your dining experience and the lovely views gradually open out to reveal the Vale of Aylesbury and Whiteleaf Cross in the distance. At Princes Risborough see the steam locomotive as she runs round the carriages, whilst those travelling on the mainline can only gaze in envy at your elegant dining experience!
Our journey from Chinnor takes approximately 75 minutes for the return trip.
