NB. You can have a table just for two in Premier Class  with a supplement of just £7.50 per person (subject to availability at the time of booking).

Celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or an anniversary, or simply decide to indulge yourself. Whatever your motives, sit back, relax and enjoy the sensory delights of main line express steam train travel just as if it was in the 'good old days'. Upon joining the train, you will travel in one of Vintage Trains' historic and authentically restored carriages, pulled by a heritage steam engine in all its burnished glory. Choose between the traditional comfort of Standard Class, with seats at a table for four, or the old world elegance of Premier Class where you can savour the best of traditional English fayre.
