Dining Trains

Join us onboard our first class dining train for a unique dining experience. You’ll embark at Bitton Station before the whistle sounds and the train gently pulls away. In the kitchen car our chef will be busily preparing your meal with the finest local ingredients while you relax and watch the rolling Avon Valley countryside roll by. During your meal our onboard bar will be open and our attentive staff will be happy to help. Experience something special for a couple of hours as you experience the unique sounds, smells and taste of a bygone age.
