Bangor to Windsor
Departs – Thursday 19 July 2018
From Bangor, Llandudno Junction, Colwyn Bay, Flint and Chester.
Our second tour of the year from North Wales takes our heritage train south along the West Coast Main Line to Windsor. Royal Windsor is a great choice for a day out with its magnificent castle and beautiful setting on the River Thames but there is plenty more to this day than just Windsor itself.
Our train is planned to arrive into Windsor and Eton Riverside Station which, as the name suggests, is close by the river and just a pleasant stroll to either Windsor Castle or Eton. Upmarket Windsor has plenty of chic shops available to browse and some lovely riverside eating spots. There is also a beautiful park to explore and, of course, the castle to visit, stunning in its dominant position overlooking the town.
Alternatively you could take a walk to Eton and take a look at the college and surrounding shops which stock the famous school uniforms. There are cafes along the route for a welcome cup of tea if a rest is in order.
After our break it's back to the comfort of our train for a relaxing journey home and another chance to enjoy the comfort of the train and the sights of the return journey.
PREMIER DINING CLASS: Includes an at seat silver service of full English Breakfast in the morning, a selection of pastries with coffee mid journey and a four course meal on the return journey all freshly prepared by our skilled chefs on board the train.
FIRST CLASS: First Class passengers will be served a selection of Tulip Muffins, freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the outward journey and a savoury refreshment box followed by cake of the day and freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the return journey.
CHILDREN UNDER 5 can be brought on the train free of charge only if not taking up a seat and sharing seats with accompanying adults.
REFRESHMENTS: A buffet counter service of snacks, hot and cold drinks, and alcoholic beverages is available to all our Standard and First Class passengers throughout the day. You are also welcome to bring your own refreshments or indeed a tasty picnic to enjoy as the countryside passes by!
First Class and Premier Dining passengers can book a private table for a supplement of £20.00 per person.
