Dad travels HALF-PRICE (half the full Adult or Senior rate) with any accompanied fare-paying visitor on Father's Day 16 June 2019. 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, snacks, plus there's also Chinnor Ales for Dad (well, it is his special day).

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 Father's Day 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.
