Golden Arrow

The Bluebell Railway’s Golden Arrow Pullman dining train is the perfect setting for a special meal with friends or an intimate evening for two. With Pullman Cars, Christine and Fingall, the train recreates the fabulous Golden Arrow which once linked London and Paris with the style and panache which made it one of the most glamorous and famous trains in the world. On board you will enjoy fine food and wine served to the standards of yesteryear. Carriage Ashdown is also used in the Golden Arrow Dining Train set-this First Class carriage, although not a Pullman, is extremely comfortable and was originally built to convey passengers from Waterloo Station to the port of Southampton to catch the Trans Atlantic Liners. It is not as ornate as a Pullman carriage but still offers comfortable seats, a nice ambience and exactly the same service as is offered in Christine and Fingall.

The below rates for children are for lunchtime trains only, luncheon trains are not suitable for children under the age of 5. We advise that Saturday evening trains are not suitable for children under the age of 14. All children on board should be fully supervised and need to remain seated throughout the journey. Please note that on-line bookings for this service are not currently available. Please contact us on 01825 720800 so that we can discuss your requirements.
