Peterborough to Carlisle
Departs – Saturday 20 October 2018

From Peterborough, Spalding, Sleaford, Metheringham, Lincoln and Gainsborough .

This trip was due to run on the 29th September but has been re-scheduled.

Enjoy the stunning Dales scenery as we make our way from Skipton through Settle and over the famous Ribblehead Viaduct. Continuing north from Ribblehead we plunge into Blea Moor tunnel, the longest on the line. We then enjoy sweeping views along Dentdale as we pass through the highest station on the line, Dent. The stunning scenery continues as we head north to the more gentle landscape of the Eden Valley, the Eden Gorge and our destination - the border city of Carlisle - where we break our journey. Carlisle may surprise the visitor with its pedestrianised centre, castle, Cathedral and some remarkably well preeserved city walls and gates.

Returning over the West Coast Main Line takes us over Shap - the highest point on the line - and past The English Lake District, before returning East across the Pennines to your home stations.

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 a breakfast bap followed by a selection of Tulip muffins on the outward journey and a savoury refreshment box followed by the cake of the day on the return journey. To accompany this, there will be a complimentary service of tea and coffee for both legs of the journey.

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