"What a grand day out."

What a grand day out. In the company of friends, Cleethorpes to Edinburgh return, travelled in luxury. Food was first class. The Catering team never stopped all day with service and friendly conversation. By the end of our journey many folks in our carriage were impressed, happy and all talking about where we could go next. Highly recommend it.

"Spectacular scenery."

We did the Premier dining trip Settle to Carlisle and weren't disappointed. Excellent food and service. Lots of room and very comfortable. Fully relaxing journey with spectacular scenery. Highly recommended.
