Afternoon Tea

We're bringing Afternoon Tea back to the Spa Valley Railway!
What could be better than gazing at the wonderful High Weald countryside aboard our restored 1960s coaches hauled by steam and heritage diesel locomotives whilst enjoying an English Afternoon Tea?

Our Afternoon Tea trains allow you to sit back and relax in our COVID secure 1960s carriages enjoying freshly prepared finger sandwiches, savoury snacks, scones with clotted cream and jam and mini-cakes, all complimented by a selection of fine teas or coffees. Board the train at 14:30 from Tunbridge Wells West and take to your seats where you'll find a traditional wicker basket containing your freshly prepared Afternoon Tea, ready for you to enjoy at your leisure during a train ride to Eridge and return.

You will depart from Tunbridge Wells West at 14:45 and return at 15:50, there will be a 15-minute break at Eridge during your journey so you can see the locomotives that have hauled your train.
