What Can I Expect

Train rides and afternoon tea. Two vouchers for two activities to be enjoyed on the same day or different dates. These packages for two really do give the best of both worlds, with a nostalgic train journey and a delicious afternoon treat out too.

The first of your vouchers is for a train ride at a heritage railway. You choose where you'd like to go from the list of partner railways. Some may offer you a return journey along the line. Others might give you a day rover ticket, which means you can hop on and off, exploring different sites and stations as you go.

Whatever type of train ride you'll be taking, it'll be nostalgic and filled with history. And you can't help but be impressed by the staff (many of whom are volunteers) who are so enthusiastic and passionate about their railway.

The second of your vouchers is for that quintessentially English pastime of afternoon tea. There's a big list of venues where you can use your vouchers, ranging from cute tea rooms, to rather swanky hotels.

The exact menu will vary from place to place, but fresh scones, jam and cream are sure to feature, along with a variety of sweet and savoury treats. And there will be freshly brewed tea or coffee for you too. Simply delicious.

The best thing about these train and afternoon tea packages for two is that you can use them on completely different days (within the limit of the voucher validity, of course). So you are getting two activities, two dates in one gift voucher bundle.

Why not make a weekend of it and go for your train ride one day and afternoon tea the other? Or maybe do one now and save the other for the next celebration? Either way you'll enjoy a train ride and an afternoon for two!
