What an overwhelming site to walk into Snow Hill Station in Birmingham to see this beautiful steam train waiting to take us on a magical ride, but alas there was no trip to Hogwarts today :-) We chose premier class with dining and was not disappointed. As soon as we sat down breakfast was served. First course was croissants and... More

steam train was lovely afternoon tea not very good. TAKE THE TRAIN BUT GIVE THE FOOD A MISS. We were looking forward to this trip but we were very unhappy with the afternoon tea not worth the money we paid for it a pity it just needs more thought putting into it
The Afternoon Tra was a new offering for the 2012 Season. We have been providing Breakfast, Lunch and High Tea with great success for 14 years. Despite many satisfied customers, we welcome any and all feedback on how we can improve the Afternno Tea for 2013. More

The journey (around 1 hour in each direction) takes in some beautiful countryside whilst also allowing the passenger to experience a bygone age of steam travel. Often, the steam locomotive will haul the train at speeds of up to 75mph on the 'fast'... More
Travelling behind a vintage steam train at over 60mph is something special and this regular trip to and from Stratford upon Avon is great fun and a wonderful way to experience a bye gone age.
What a fantastic day. Travelled in style then did a Treasure Trail. Brilliant.
