Please Note: This trip was due to run on the 16th May but has been rescheduled to run on the 4th October 2018

Scarborough to Stratford upon Avon
Departs – Thursday 04 October 2018

From Scarborough, Seamer, Malton, York, Church Fenton and Pontefract.

This trip is hauled by vintage diesel.

Join us for a nostalgic day out aboard our heritage diesel hauled special direct to Stratford upon Avon which 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 so 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.


PREMIER DINING CLASS: Includes an at seat silver service of full English Breakfast in the morning and a four course meal on the return journey all freshly prepared by our skilled chefs on board the train.

FIRST CLASS: First Class passengers will be served a selection of Tulip Muffins, freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the outward journey and a savoury refreshment box followed by cake of the day and freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the return journey.

CHILDREN UNDER 5 can be brought on the train free of charge only if not taking up a seat and sharing seats with accompanying adults.

REFRESHMENTS: A buffet counter service of snacks, hot and cold drinks, and alcoholic beverages is available to all our Standard and First Class passengers throughout the day. You are also welcome to bring your own refreshments or indeed a tasty picnic to enjoy as the countryside passes by!

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