Carriages of Cambridge COVID-19 Update

Dear valued customers,

Although the Government have reduced the guidelines of social distancing to 1 metre, we are unable to implement this within the confinement’s of our vintage railway carriages and surrounding buildings.

We are hoping to reopen at the beginning of September providing that there is further easement of restriction. Please look out for updates.

The booking office will reopen a fortnight before the main tea rooms to process all booking enquiries.

All vouchers that have expired during this closure will be extended and any deposits can be carried forward onto future bookings.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

From all the Carriages team


Phone lines open for bookings between 9.30am to 5.30pm. 

Booking enquiry’s will be confirmed via email or telephone. All bookings are provisional until we confirm the booking via email or phone.

We require a 50% deposit with each reservation to secure your booking which can be paid over the phone.  This deposit will be deducted from the final bill amount. Any booking cancellations may lose their deposit money, 24 hour cancellation policies apply.

Vouchers can be purchased over the phone or in person. If you are dining with us with a voucher, the voucher will be used as the deposit. Any booking cancellations may lose their voucher, 24 hour cancellation policies apply.


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).

There will be a 10% table surcharge for parties of 9 or above who wish to be seated on a table together in Lancelot.

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.

Booking requests can be made via our booking request form below.

Or telephone:- 01954 233279.
