What Can I Expect

Step back in time with a superb steam train Sunday lunch aboard the 'Elizabethan' service from Loughborough! This heritage steam railway is one of the most popular steam railway visitor attractions in the UK and boasts countless TV and film appearances too.

These Sunday lunch experiences depart from Loughborough's Great Central station and as you gently glide through the Leicestershire countryside, you will be served a fantastic four course meal. Just as it would have been during the golden age of steam, your meal is freshly prepared in the on-board kitchens of the train and served at your table in the first class dining car of the 'Elizabethan' service.

As you take in the amazing views out of your window, your taste buds will be tingled with a traditional Sunday lunch. So sit back, relax and let yourself be dined in 1950s style, as you enjoy the 16 mile round trip from Loughborough to Leicester North stations and back again.

Once the coffee has been sipped and the after lunch mints munched, you will arrive back at the Loughborough station, but your steam train Sunday lunch doesn't end there. With this experience you benefit from free travel on all trains all day, as well as being able to visit the on site museum, making for a full day out.

Another amazing experience from IntotheBlue.co.uk, see this link for similar steam train excursions throughout the UK, steam train trips.

It was fantastic. The food was great and the service was far better than a lot of hotels offer. Would love to do it again sometime.
Yes, I recommend this product.
