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.
