Travel back with someone special to the bygone era of steam travel for a chugging trip through the High Weald countryside, and complement your day out with some sumptuous bites and fizz, with this Steam Train Trip on the Spa Valley Railway with Cream Tea and Prosecco for Two.
Arrive at the Tunbridge Wells West station before 15.00, so you have time to take a peek at the Victorian Engine Shed before boarding the train. As you pass the picturesque sights of the High Weald countryside, you’ll be served a tasty Cream Tea in one of the train’s Heritage carriages. To top things off, you can enjoy a 20cl bottle of Prosecco each to make the occasion extra special.
With all-day travel included, you’re free to make use of your tickets earlier on in the day and check out some of the great stops en route – just make sure you’re at Tunbridge Wells in time to board for the Cream Tea service.
Your voucher is valid for 9 months from the date of issue, while government restrictions apply in relation to Covid-19 we are offering free extensions on all experiences so you can take your experience when the time is right.
Be sure to arrive at Tunbridge Wells West in plenty of time for a 15.00 departure. If you get there early, you can check out the Victorian Engine Shed, before alighting the train and taking your seats in one of the beautifully decorated Heritage carriages.
Once you’ve set off, you can relax and take in the views of the countryside, before being served up a traditional Cream Tea, complete with a 20cl bottle of prosecco each. Your tickets are valid for all-day use, so you can make the most out of them earlier if you choose to, as there are plenty of great places to explore from the stops en route. Your train will arrive back at Tunbridge Wells West at 16.40.
