Travel through stunning Cambridgeshire countryside and celebrate one of the most revolutionary ways to travel while enjoying a quintessentially British afternoon delicacy. Nene Valley Railway welcomes guests from far and wide and invites them to hop aboard one of their fine steam locomotives, which has been lovingly restored by a team of dedicated volunteers. Once sat comfortably, you’ll journey past three stops with the opportunity to stop off and explore. As you watch the world go by, you’ll be provided with plenty of fascinating facts about the railway from the Nene Valley team and will enjoy a delicious, traditional afternoon tea.
Once you arrive at Nene Valley make your way to the ticket office and exchange your voucher for some authentic train tickets before making your way to the platform. Once aboard, a wonderfully British afternoon tea will already be waiting for you, with the spread including warm scones with cream and jam, chocolate or Victoria sponge cake, sandwiches and either tea or coffee.
Departing from Wansford station, you will head west through the tunnel then back across the River Nene. Should you wish to stretch your legs, the station at Ferry Meadows Country Park is the perfect place to stop off. Explore the park’s three lakes that cover 120 acres, visit the information centre and be sure to check out the miniature steam railway. Your ride will then terminate at Peterborough station before the return journey begins. Don’t forget to look around the station and admire the other trains, including the famous Thomas the Tank Engine.
Please note, your voucher offers you a Rover Ticket and therefore does not restrict you to a specific timed train. If the steam train is unavailable for unforeseen reasons beyond the control of Nene Valley, it will be replaced by a diesel train.
