Relax over a champagne brunch while heading out on a steam locomotive
Spend some time exploring a chosen destination
A four-course meal is served on the return journey
It's like stepping back in time when boarding a Cathedrals Express train hauled by a magnificent steam engine, from departure points across the South, the Midlands and London. After a champagne breakfast or brunch on board with tea and coffee, arrive in style at one of England's most beautiful cathedral cities (choose from Bath, Bristol, Oxford, Canterbury, Lincoln, York, Salisbury, Carlisle, Ely, Exeter, Bournemouth, Litchfield, Shrewsbury or Weymouth). Disembark and spend a few hours sightseeing or shopping, then step back into the carriage to be served a delicious four-course dinner and relax in the smooth ambience of steam train travel on the return journey.
