If you join us on a festive day out by steam this Christmas, familiar faces will welcome you aboard our brand new lovingly-refurbished carriages, which were recently featured on My5’s World’s Most Scenic Railway Journeys.
Usher in the festive season on board beautifully decorated carriages where you will be treated to a mince pie in addition to the enhanced service described below.
Whether you indulge in a Pullman Style Dining experience, choose the comfort of First Class or favour the simplicity of Premium Standard, we can guarantee a wonderful nostalgic experience with unforgettable added touches and an elevated level of service from our liveried staff.
Pullman Style Dining
Luxurious interiors await you in Pullman Style Dining. The tables are adorned with the finest glassware and crockery, complemented by fresh flowers and a brand new seasonal menu.
Passengers will be welcomed on board with a glass of bubbly before being served a traditional breakfast with all the trimmings. On the return journey, soak up the atmosphere from a bygone era as canapes are served before the sumptuous evening meal with a half bottle of wine per person.
You don’t need to dine on board to travel in style. In First Class you will be seated in elegant 1950s carriages with comfortable seating around tables for four and tables for two.
Our staff will welcome you on board the with a glass of Bucks Fizz as you sink into your comfortable seats.
Our culinary team are devising a delicious combination of sweet and savoury treats for both the outward and return journeys which will be confirmed before you book.
Premium Standard tickets give you everything you need and more from a steam day out experience; complimentary tea and coffee, comfortable refurbished seating and a souvenir booklet about your day.
If you can draw your eyes away from the changing view, you can pay a visit to our new Buffet Car to purchase from a delectable selection of festive snacks or something from our drinks menu.

Hi……PLEASE could we have a couple of trips that pick in Exeter this year……The Christmas trains look wonderful…
Thank you! We’d love to oick up in Exeter but unfortunately it’s not possible with our currently planned itineraries. Check out our friends at Saphos Trains who may be able to help https://saphostrains.com/trips-tours/
I need something which picks up in Swindon please.
Unfortunately none of our Christmas trips are planned to stop at Swindon but we will be offering trips from Salisbury and Reading next year which may be of interest? Otherwise check out our friends over at Saphos trains who sometimes pick up at Swindon: https://saphostrains.com/trips-tours/
Can you tell me if there are any Christmas 2022 trips from Bristol thank you
Hi Liz I’m afraid as we are based in London we don’t often offer trips from Bristol. Sometimes our friends over at Saphos Trains offer trips from Bristol. Find out more here: https://saphostrains.com/trips-tours/

Not at the moment but we may add a Woking stop to our Bath Christmas Market trip 🙂

Will there be any tours departing from Southampton Central Station any time soon?
We are running a trip from Portsmouth on 20th August but otherwise our next trip from the area will be in Spring 2023.
