Afternoon Tea at the Spa Valley Railway!
Combine the elegance of steam train travel with a quintessential British treat, as you enjoy Afternoon Tea on one of our heritage trains steaming through the glorious High Weald countryside in the Garden of England. 

Working in partnership with Carly’s Afternoon Teas there is no finer way to relax than with Afternoon Tea on a steam hauled train. Tuck into a wonderful selection of freshly prepared finger sandwiches, scones, cakes, and a choice of teas, all available to you at your table. Why not enhance your Afternoon Tea by adding a bottle of Prosecco as you checkout?

Enjoy passing through an area of outstanding natural beauty whilst, making sure you keep an eye out for the famous sandstone rocks and Kentish Oast Houses along the way, there’ll be an opportunity to see the locomotive which has pulled your train at either end of the journey.

Your experience will last just over 1 hour, you’ll return to your starting location (please see your eTicket for details of your departure time and station).
