Solve the clues on board your evening dining train. The scene is set before your departure and continues as you travel through the countryside.
Each evening has a different riddle to solve.
Seating Arrangements in the Dining Car
The dining tables seat four people. As they are from a bygone era, the seating arrangement is cosy. If you are booking for less than four people, be aware that you may have other diners at your table. We hope that you will see it as a chance to make new friends.
Access for those with mobility issues
Due to the historic design of our carriages, with their narrow doors and gangways, it is not possible to accommodate wheelchairs on the train. It is also important to note that passengers with mobility issues will need to climb up or down a step to get into or out of the train. For those who can walk a short distance, wheelchairs can be folded and carried in the brake van. To avoid problems on the day of the visit, we strongly advise those with mobility issues seek advice from our office before booking.
Food allergies and intolerances
Please let us know of any food allergies or intolerances you or your guests may have when booking your dining experience. We are keen to accommodate alternative diets whenever possible. Please email your requirements.
