Steam train’s journey from Stratford to the Avon
PUBLISHED: 16:00 08 August 2015
Do you fancy swapping the busy urban streets of Stratford for the relaxing rural town of, well, Stratford?
Steam train The Cathedrals Express will be running a special journey from east London to Warwickshire on Saturday, August 22.
Arriving at Stratford station at 10am, it will haul vintage carriages up to Stratford-upon-Avon.
After enjoying the views on the leisurely journey, there will be a couple of hours to explore attractions including Shakespeare’s birthplace and Anne Hathaway’s cottage.
Marcus Robertson, chairman of operators Steam Dreams, said: “Once on board The Cathedrals Express, passengers can sit back and relax in our elegantly refurbished 1950’s and 60’s carriages and take in the wonderful scenery as we make our way to Stratford-Upon-Avon.
“They can even enjoy a champagne breakfast on the way there and a four or five course meal on the way home.”
Tickets for the trip are available in four classes and start at £99 per person.
