Take a journey back in time and enjoy a fun-filled, nostalgic day out with this Steam Train Ride with Cream Tea for Two experience.

This majestic mode of transport has been around for over 200 years and was a key part in the growth of the Industrial Revolution. Seeing these trains up close and in all their glory brings a real sense of history to your day.

You will have a choice of three different railway locations to choose from.

Nene Valley Railway

Most passengers usually join at Wansford Station, heading west and passing through the Wansford Tunnel towards the end of the line at Yarwood Junction. From here the train travels back East over the River Nene on a girder bridge.

You’ll pass through Ferry Meadows and alongside Overton Lake. Passengers may break their journey up and visit Peterborough and take in the nearby Railworld or perhaps wander around the city, which is only a short walk away from the station.

Your cream tea will be served in the train’s carriage and will consist of a scrumptious scone with cream and jam and accompanied with a refreshing pot of tea or coffee. Please note, you may be seated in pairs or as a group of four.

Llanberis Lake Railway

The little steam engines take you on a five-mile return journey alongside Lake Padarn, right in the heart of Snowdonia.

The journey takes you past the 13th century Dolbadarn Castle, across possibly Britain's shortest river and past Llanberis' twin lakes. From Llanberis the train runs non-stop through the Padarn Country Park, joining the 1845 slate railway route to run along the shores of Lake Padarn to Penllyn, and giving stunning views of Snowdon, the highest peak in England and Wales. There's a short stop at Cei Llydan, a beautifully tranquil place which is ideal for a lakeside picnic. At Gilfach Ddu you can visit the National Slate Museum, watch the driver stoking the fire, the engine taking on water or spend some time in the gift shop and café.

After your Steam Train ride, you will indulge in a cream tea inside the café situated at the back of the Station at Gilfach Ddu.

Dean Forest Railway

The 4 1/2 mile line runs through beautiful woodland and countryside offering visitors a chance to experience the relaxing pace of a typical country branch line. With our 5 stations along the way you'll have time to explore the local area, taking in woodland walks and country pubs or venturing down to the Severn estuary to explore Lydney Harbour with its fantastic views across the Severn. You will be treated to an cream tea served on board the train.

*If the Steam train is unavailable for reasons beyond the control of the venue it will be replaced by a Diesel train.

Better than expected

We were given this experience as a Christmas present, so had waited 6 months to enjoy it! The train ride alongside the lake was delightful, with good views of the scenery, especially Snowdon. Staff were welcoming and helpful. The cream tea was very tasty and better than anticipated, and the accompanying sun made the whole experience very enjoyable.

Great people!

A Christmas present. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. From the moment we arrived at Foxfield we felt welcomed, we were even given an extra free train ride. The staff made the experience so enjoyable by their cheerfulness, their attention and by the way they laid out the carriage.
