Guided Tours & Cream Teas on board the famous Old Gentleman's Saloon
The famous Victorian North Eastern Railway Saloon which starred in the film 'The Railway Children' will be in service this Summer offering exclusive guided tours of filming locations and complementary Cream Teas. You will be welcomed on board by our own frock-coated 'Old Gentleman' who will provide an entertaining and elightening guide to the film while our Butler will be on hand to serve complementary cream teas.
Tours will operate on Sundays 24th June, 8th, 15th & 29th July, departing OXENHOPE at 11.45, 13.15, 14.45 or 16.15. A £15 supplement is payable covering admission to the saloon and the cost of refreshments, and you must hold a valid travel ticket. The saloon is the oldest operational standard gauge passenger coach in the world and seats just 14 people. Don't miss this rare opportunity to travel in Victorian elegance with 'The Old Gentleman' and his Butler. You will also have the opportunity to purchase our best-selling book 'The Making of The Railway Children' which reveals behind-the-scenes information and gossip, as recalled by the Railway volunteers who were actuially there.
You can even book the entire saloon for one or more round trips, giving you an unusual and exclusive venue for your family get-together or celebration.
