The dining trains at Avon Valley Railway aim to recreate the glory days of the railway dining car. The Pines Express was the Manchester to Bournemouth long-distance service that ran daily through Bitton between 1910 and 1967. Come and re-live this experience with an afternoon tea.
You’ll embark at Bitton Station before the whistle sounds and the train gently pulls away. In the kitchen the chef prepares your food and drinks with the finest local ingredients while you relax and watch the rolling Avon Valley countryside pass by. The journey consists of a number of six mile round trips and you should allow approximately three hours for the occasion. These trains are usually steam hauled and depart at 12.15pm.
Enjoy a welcoming glass of Prosecco followed by a High Tea of finger sandwiches, scones with jam & cream and a selection of dainty cakes or pastries. Plus tea or coffee.
