"Chinese Night" at The Great Central Railway

Your four-course evening meal 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 7.30pm returning at approximately 10.00 p.m. Tickets are £47.00 per adult  The price includes the full cost of the train ticket.
