Tickets are £100 per person and include a six course world tasting menu, glass of Champagne, magical entertainment and a four hour journey on our beautiful Wealden Rambler carriage set hauled by a steam locomotive.

Travel round the world with us this New Year’s Eve and celebrate the end of 2020!

We can’t welcome in the New Year with our usual late night celebrations, but we know it’s New Year somewhere else first! Join us, for a very special lunch train and kick off 2021 in style. As they celebrate in New Zealand, you could be making your first toast of the day!

Covid-19 stopped our exotic holidays this year, so enjoy a taste of distant lands and cultures with our exciting tasting menu.

Enjoy spacious comfort and luxury on our Wealden Rambler as you steam across the Sussex Weald and through some of the last hours of 2020. We want to make you visit safe and enjoyable, so social distancing measures will be in place and people will be seated at every-other table in the carriages.

Finish your trip with a glass of complimentary champagne and toast 2021. Toast the adventures to come, the loved ones we’ve missed and to a bright and healthy future.

A magician will be on the train to entertain passengers – perhaps he can make 2020 disappear!
