Queen's Platinum Jubilee Sparkling Afternoon Tea

2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th June

Queen's Platinum Jubilee Sparkling Afternoon Tea
In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. As our way of celebrating this wonderful occasion you can enjoy a special steam hauled Sparkling Afternoon Tea train 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. 

There’s no finer way to spend a relaxing afternoon than with Afternoon Tea on a steam hauled train, travelling in our heritage 1960s carriages, you’ll enjoy the relaxing journey through the High Weald between Tunbridge Wells West and Eridge. Sit back and relax as you tuck in to a wonderful selection of freshly prepared traditional finger sandwiches, savoury snacks, scones, and cakes, all found in the Afternoon Tea hamper on your table. 

Enjoy passing through an area of outstanding natural beauty, making sure you keep an eye out for the famous sandstone rocks and Oast Houses along the way, the beautifully restored carriages, and a delicious Afternoon Tea!
