Christmas Time Cream Tea Special!

What better way to spend the period between Christmas and New Year than indulging in a Cream Tea on a heritage train between Tunbridge Wells West & Eridge and return!

Travel on the 14:45 service from Tunbridge Wells West to Eridge on either the 30th, 31st December or 1st January and see the Winter High Weald countryside from the comfort of our beautifully decorated Bar Car 'Kate' whilst enjoying a wonderful Cream Tea.

Arrive at Tunbridge Wells West for 14:15 and take a look inside our Victorian Engine Shed which will still have Santa's Sleigh and our large Christmas Tree on display. Board the train at 14:35 and travel to Eridge hauled by a heritage diesel, your Cream Tea being served upon departure from Tunbridge Wells.

Upon arrival at Eridge you'll have the opportunity to alight briefly and visit the Christmas Waiting Room and see our Steam Locomotive (which is on the back of the train from Tunbridge Wells West). Rejoin the train ready for the Steam Locomotive to haul you back up the hill to Tunbridge Wells, arriving back there for approximately 16:00.

What a fabulous way to spend one of those cold winter afternoons!

For just £18 per adult or £9 per child you can enjoy the following:

  • Adults - 2x scones, clotted cream, jam and pot of tea plus train travel to Eridge and return in Bar Car 'Kate'. 
    Enjoy a glass of hot Mulled wine for just £3 on the day too!
  • Child - 1x scone, clotted cream, jam and carton of apple juice plus train travel to Eridge and return in Bar Car 'Kate'.

Bookings can be made online to the right hand side of this page. Please note that your train is hauled by a 1960s Heritage Diesel in one direction and a Steam Locomotive in the other (subject to availability). 

If you would like to just travel on the day without enjoying a Cream Tea then you are most welcome to. It is our Kids for a Quid & Mince Pie Specials time of year where all children travel for just £1 and every adult receives a complimentary Mince Pie on the outward journey from Tunbridge Wells West! Our well stocked bar car 'Kate' will even have Mulled Wine on offer at just £3 per cup!

Book online for our Mince Pie Specials & Kids for a Quid here. Please note you do not have to book for this if you're booking a Christmas Time Cream Tea.
