Festive Afternoon Tea

Come and enjoy afternoon tea with a festive twist at Bluebell Railway!

We are running our Wealden Rambler afternoon tea trains with a Christmas-inspired menu on selected dates in December 2021

Steam through the Sussex countryside while you enjoy mulled wine, sandwiches filled with festive fillings and Christmas cakes and pastries.

This service departs Sheffield Park at 12:00pm for a return trip to East Grinstead, returning to Sheffield Park at around 1:45pm. We regret it’s not possbile to join the service at any other of our stations.
