Stratford upon Avon is, of course, famous for its connections with William Shakespeare and rightly so. Being the birthplace of the famous Bard and now the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company makes this town a big draw. You may wish to visit Shakespeare´s birthplace with its museum collection or maybe take a tour of Anne Hathaway´s cottage with its gardens. All these attractions are on the route of the hop on hop off open top bus which operates around the town.

However there is much more to Stratford than just William Shakespeare. A charming medieval centre with timber framed buildings and lots of independent shops makes for a lovely afternoon visit. Add to this the canal with its boat trips and also the river, which makes its way through the central park, then Stratford has a most attractive centre worthy of a visit in its own right.

Departing Bridlington aboard our vintage diesel hauled service at around 06:00 this should give approximately four hours in Stratford with an arrival back into Bridlington around 22:15.

Pullman Dining Settle to Carlisle Line passengers will be served a full English breakfast with complimentary Buck's Fizz plus elevenses or light lunch (depending on finalised timings), on the outward journey. A delicious four course evening dinner preceded by canapés and Champagne will be served on the return journey.

Pullman First Class passengers will be served pastries on the outward leg and a savoury of the day followed by cake will be served on the return journey. To accompany this there will be a complimentary service of tea and coffee.

Standard and First Class passengers will have access to a buffet for the purchase of tea, coffee and light refreshments. You are also welcome to bring your own refreshments or indeed a tasty picnic to enjoy as the countryside passes by!

First Class and Pullman Dining passengers can book a private table for a supplement of £20.00 per person.
