Climb aboard Louis, Oliver or Lancelot for your afternoon tea experience.

You can choose from our light and airy open carriages or book one of our more private four-seater compartments. (There is a supplement of £20 per compartment with comfy Pullman seats or £15 for other compartments).

Our venue is accessible to wheelchairs, buggies and prams, however as Louis and Oliver are Pullman style Carriages the corridors are narrower than today’s train corridors. We suggest you book Lancelot should you require accessibility or have younger children.

We recommend you book your table in advance as all of our Afternoon Teas are made freshly that day.
