Mothers Day 2024 - Cream Tea


Come and join us on Mothers Day for a special celebration with a regal twist. We will be running our Top and Tail trains throughout the day with a steam engine on the front and a diesel engine at the back. In the morning we will be serving coffee and cake in our historic restored Great Eastern Railway Royal Saloon, built in 1898. The carriage was specifically built for the the Princess of Wales, Alexandra, wife of the future King Edward VII. In the afternoons we will be serving Alison's cream tea.

Tickets include entrance to our wonderful museum and all day travel on other trains. We also have a gift shop and a tea room serving drinks and light refreshments.

Trains depart from Preston Riverside Station.
