Treat the family to a fantastic steam railway journey through the rolling hills of the Yorkshire countryside.

There’s one way to make the trip even more memorable – by enjoying a delicious cream tea served at your table as the historic carriages trundle along to the beat of a steam engine pulling hard at the head of the train!

A fantastic day out for all the family, with a luxurious treat thrown in.

What you get:

  • First Class Silver Service: Table seat, embroidered table cloth, head rests and curtains
  • Hot beverages of Fresh Ground Filter Coffee or our delightful Yorkshire Tea
  • Fresh scone served with clotted cream and strawberry jam
  • Return journey - your table is reserved for your return journey too - perhaps you'd like to save half of your scone for the way back?
  • Refills of our tea and coffee available on the return journey
  • Children have the option of a large cookie instead of the scone (most still opt for the scone!)
  • Children can have fresh apple or orange juice (instead of tea/coffee) if they prefer
  • Day rover ticket to ride on the train for the rest of the day (standard class)
