Be part of an age old tradition of travel and step back in time onboard a steam train due to pick up passengers in Hounslow.
Steam Dreams which operate the Cathedrals Express will revive the British tradition of the Sunday luncheon special on September 28, departing from Hounslow train station at 9.40am.
Passengers will be hauled by locomotive 70013 Oliver Cromwell on a journey through Chiswick, Putney, Clapham Junction and Bromley South before heading to the Cathedral city of Canterbury where they will be able to explore the medieval city centre, shops and take boat trips up the River Stour, for up to three hours.
The London to Canterbury route was the first journey operated by Cathedrals Express in 2000.
Nostalgia will continue on the day trip with a gourmet three-course meal on the outward journey and high tea on the return.
Passengers will rejoin the steam train at 3.55pm, arriving back in Hounslow at 7.45pm.
The four classes range from premium standard (£99pp) to Pullman style dining (239pp).
Steam Dreams chairman, Marcus Robertson, said: “We are delighted to be visiting Hounslow to pick up passengers for this classic steam journey across Southern England.
"Those travelling in our beautifully restored 1950’s and 60’s dining carriages will enjoy a delicious three course lunch, reviving an age old tradition of steam travel.”
