Back for 2017
Join us for our popular luxury Afternoon Tea experience on a Tuesday and travel back in time to the golden age. Enjoy a grand traditional Afternoon Tea on board our 1950s dining train between Wirksworth and Duffield through the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.
Following a fizz reception, you will be invited to board the 14:10 service from Wirksworth to Duffield where we shall begin the service of the afternoon tea. Stay on the train for the 15:05 return to Wirksworth as we continue to serve you at your seat. The tea includes a selection of freshly made sandwiches, delightful scones with jam and clotted cream, French fancies, pastries and more delightfully presented on a traditional stand at your seat. Follow up with as much tea as you can manage!
The experience includes a full day rover ticket so that guests can enjoy freedom of the line on the day and explore the local towns and villages. Guests may use the day ticket to start at Duffield before the dining train and return there afterwards if they wish, on the last train of the day
Tickets are sold in pairs only at £59.00 for two people and include one return journey in our dining cars for the luxury Afternoon Tea and an all day ticket each.
Points to Note
- Tickets are sold in pairs and you may be seated with another couple.
- We are unable to take bookings for individual passengers at this time.
- Parties of more than four passengers will be split across tables.
- The dining train has been built inside railway vehicles which are approaching 60 years old. Due to this, the compartments are not suitable for wheelchair passengers.
