Luncheon by steam

There are few things as magical as a steam locomotive. Climb aboard and enjoy the enchanting scenery of the Welsh Borders.

Recline in the plush seats of historic 1950's railway carriages2 and watch the world go by. As liveried stewards serve drinks and freshly prepared food, our iconic steam engine will take us through historic cities and astounding countryside on our four hour circular journey.

Welsh Borders

Journey with us on an exploration of the stunning Welsh Borders. Travelling from Crewe our train will cross the Cheshire Plain, passing the Roman fortress of Beeston Castle before entering the City of Chester.

We shall then make our way south, winding it's way through rolling hills on our way to Wrexham, placed perfectly between the Welsh mountains and the Dee Valley before returning north to Crewe.

The Experience

Whether you choose the luxury of Dining4 and a sumptuous three course meal, the elegant relaxation of First Class or just watch the world fly past in the simplicity of Standard.

All of our experiences have something unique to offer and we are certain we have the perfect journey for you.
