Take a trip back in time aboard our beautifully restored train for a tour across the rugged countryside of the Pennine chain to Roman Chester, one of England's most attractive destinations.
Chester is full of history and is, of course, famous for its Roman connections and you may wish to visit the Roman Experience Museum to get a feel of ancient Chester. Chester is one of the few cities in England which has an almost complete set of walls around which you can walk. Other attractions include numerous museums and the famous timbered 'lanes' a splendid shopping experience.
Standing on the River Dee, Chester is in a beautiful setting with much to offer the visitor including riverside vistas and boat tours. Of course you may just prefer to wander around the beautiful "Olde Worlde" centre and marvel at the medieval timbered buildings.
After our break, we rejoin our train for a relaxing journey home with the opportunity to enjoy a meal or snack on board.
PREMIER DINING CLASS: Includes an at seat silver service of full English Breakfast in the morning and a four course meal on the return journey all freshly prepared by our skilled chefs on board the train.

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!
