Join us aboard our beautiful chocolate and cream vintage diesel hauled Pullman train and cross the country from east to west for a choice of destinations. Bristol is a regular destination for main line trains but this is a rare chance to travel to the traditional coastal resort of Weston Super Mare by private train.

If you choose to leave us at Bristol you can expect a break of three to four hours, ample time to get a feel for a city famed for its independence and creativity. A trip to Bristol would not be complete without a visit to its docks and a sight of the famous SS Great Britain which was designed by none other than Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Alternatively, travel on to Weston Super Mare where we are scheduled to have a two to three hours break. Weston is famed for its miles and miles of beaches and its sweeping views over to Wales and down the coast all the way to Exmoor. It has an abundance of small eateries, cafes and bars whichare perfect for sitting out in the spring sunshine and watching the world go by.

We plan to depart Cleethorpes at around 06:00 and pick up at the stations detailed above. After a break in Bristol or West Super Mare we return expecting to arrive back into Cleethorpes around 22:00.
