Christmas Day Luncheon

Your five-course lunch is served aboard our First Class Restaurant Cars as a steam locomotive* takes you on a leisurely journey through Charnwood's glorious countryside. Your meal is served during the journey and there will normally be a pause on Swithland viaduct with its magnificent views across the reservoir to Charnwood Forest.

The train departs from Loughborough Central at 1.00p.m, returning at approximately 4.30pm. The price includes the full cost of the train ticket (Worth £29.50). At weekends, rail travel is normally unlimited on the date of dining.

*Steam Loco may be substituted for a Heritage Diesel Loco when Steam is not available.
