Back by popular demand, Steam Dreams Rail Co is reviving their Sunday Luncheon Specials on a trip planned to Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon from London Paddington on Sunday 1 July. Passengers are in for a treat as they experience the magic of steam travel whilst chugging across beautiful English countryside to fabulous destinations, enjoying a delicious Sunday lunch, using the finest seasonal British fare.
On Sunday 1 July the train, hauled by A4 steam locomotive 60009 Union of South Africa, will start out from London Paddington, stopping additionally at Beaconsfield and Princes Risborough to take passengers to Warwick or Stratford-Upon- Avon. Departing at approximately 11:15 passengers can sit back and relax whilst they enjoy this leisurely Sunday lunchtime trip taking in the beautiful English scenery as we climb through the Chilterns before arriving Warwick with its famous Castle and grounds landscaped by Capability Brown. Alternatively passengers can stay on to Stratford-upon- Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare, with its stunning architecture, quaint and quirky shops and beautiful river walks. Passengers will re-join the train at 18:20 (18:50 at Warwick) for the return journey which will get into London Paddington at around 21:55.
Marcus Robertson, Founder of Steam Dreams commented: “Sunday lunch and steam travel bring together two great British traditions and provide the perfect recipe for a nostalgic day out. Our Sunday luncheon trains have always proved very popular and are a lovely way to enjoy a day out with the whole family, old and young alike.” Robertson added: “Steam Dreams prides itself on its high quality of dining using the finest seasonal ingredients as part of a modern British menu with a nod to the glory days of the British Pullman cars.”
