Sunday Luncheon 2019 - "The Elizabethan"

This train runs on most Sundays through the year, except at certain special events.

Your three-course lunch is served aboard our First Class Restaurant Cars as a steam locomotive takes you on a leisurely journey through Charnwood’s glorious countryside. Your meal is served during the journey and there will normally be a pause on Swithland viaduct with its magnificent views across the reservoir to Charnwood Forest.

The train departs from Loughborough Central at 1.00 p.m, returning at approximately 2.45pm. Tickets are £46.00 per adult or £36.00 per child. The price includes the full cost of the train ticket. At weekends, rail travel is unlimited on the date of dining.
