Wednesday Luncheon 2020 – The Midlander

Wednesday Luncheon - "The Midlander"

The Midlander runs on selected Wednesday lunchtimes.

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 1.00p.m, returning at approximately 2.45pm. Tickets are £35.00 per adult / £35.00 per child. The price includes the full cost of the train ticket. Rail travel is limited on the date of dining due to the Santa services.
