After boarding the train, guests will embark on a journey through the stunning local countryside, while indulging in either a delicious three-course meal at their own first-class private table or enjoying our more informal option in our Lounge Car.

Throughout the journey, our friendly staff will keep guests’ glasses filled with Ruddy Fine G&Ts, allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the atmosphere of a bygone era.
