The steam train will depart from Tunbridge Wells West and meander through the High Weald and finish at Eridge. Onboard you will have access to a delectable selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, snacks, scones, and cakes. Tea, coffee, and a glass of prosecco are also provided for each person.
Pricing is set at £90 for a table for 2 and £180 for a table for 4.
