2019 PRICING

  • Premier Dining £269 per person includes at seat silver service dining: a glass of Buck's Fizz after morning departure, a hearty English breakfast, and on the return journey, a glass of champagne, followed by a four course dinner with coffee and chocolates. N.B. We do not recommend Premier Dining for under tens because of the Health & Safety issues from the constant service of hot food and beverages on the moving train.

  • First Class Plus £185 per person includes a complimentary service of coffee and tea with a bacon or sausage or egg roll followed later by more drinks and a selection of pastries on the outward journey and on the return journey a Devon cream Tea.

  • Standard Class £115 per person, £75 per junior (under 16 years) - Family Ticket (2 Adults & 2 Juniors) £340

  • Group Booking Discount - Discount of £20 for parties of four booked at the same time (N.B. EXCLUDES FAMILY TICKETS)

The above fares apply to all joining stations. We regret that because of time constraints Premier Dining is not available to passengers boarding at Taunton.

We are able to cater for some special dietary requirements, but whilst we do our best, all foods are prepared in a limited space so we are unable to guarantee that there is no cross contamination. Please advise us at the time of booking if you have any intolerances and you will be asked to complete a form which will be sent to the catering company.

Sandwiches, snacks, confectionery and hot drinks can be purchased from the buffet, together with a selection of wines, other alcoholic and soft drinks.

Subject to availability of the seating required, we can accept bookings within three days of the date of running, but we will usually confirm your seat reservation and other details by phone or by email, and your boarding pass(es) will be handed to you at your seat(s) on the day.
