Our Story

Carriages is the brainchild of Michael Attle inspired by a visit to a restaurant located in a colonial railway station in India.

On his return, he was offered and bought the station platform from Oakham. This experience, combined with his desire to celebrate the amazing food scene across East Anglia, was the start of the journey.

He then began to build the station with a signal box and source Pullman Style Carriages, a 1920’s station house and even the flagstones for the platform. This project has been a labour of love for all involved. The highest attention to detail has been paid to this project even down to the weight of the cutlery, quality of the bone china and vintage style glasses and cake stands.

Together Michael, and his team have created a truly stunning venue nestled amongst the display gardens at Bannold in Fen Drayton, Cambridge.
