£64.00 Luxury Afternoon Tea Luxury Afternoon Tea

Tuesdays from mid-June until end of September

You will be invited to board the 14:10 service from Wirksworth to Duffield where you will be greeted with a fizz and we shall begin the service of the afternoon tea. Stay on the train for the 15:05 return to Wirksworth as we continue to serve you at your seat. The tea includes a selection of freshly made sandwiches, delightful scones with jam and clotted cream, French fancies, pastries and more delightfully presented on a traditional stand at your seat. Follow up with as much tea as you can manage!

The experience includes a full day rover ticket so that guests can enjoy freedom of the line on the day and explore the local towns and villages. Guests may use the day ticket to start at Duffield before the dining train and return there afterwards if they wish, on the last train of the day.

Tickets are sold in pairs only and include one return journey in our dining cars for the luxury Afternoon Tea and an all day ticket each.
