Golden Arrow Valentine's Evening Dining

Home - Golden Arrow Valentine's Evening Dining


The Bluebell Railway’s Golden Arrow Valentine's Evening Dining train is the perfect setting for a romantic evening.

Enjoy an intimate and romantic journey with your Valentine, travelling aboard a beautifully decorated Valentine's Day Golden Arrow

With Pullman Cars, 'Christine' and 'Fingall' and 1st Class carriage 'Sapphire', 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.

'Christine' and 'Fingall' evoke the heady days of the 1920/30s with their unique wooden wall panel Marquetry and plush seating. 'Sapphire' hails from the 1950s and provides equally comfortable and plush surroundings, being built to convey 1st Class passengers from Waterloo to board Transatlantic liners at Southampton in the glory days of ocean travel.

After being greeted with a glass of prosecco, you will be served with a fabulous 4-course meal with a romantic twist. Present your loved one with a complimentary red rose - one per couple.

Ticket prices are per person and your journey will last approximately 3½ hours.

A cup of tea or coffee at the end of your meal is included in the cost, all other drinks may be purchased and paid for on the train.

Tables for 2, 3 or 4 are available in the 'Christine' and 'Sapphire' and tables for 1, 2, 3 or 4 in 'Fingall'.


A set menu is offered.

We are pleased to offer both traditional and a vegetarian/vegan menus on all of our Golden Arrow services and these menus can be adapted to cater for gluten free and dairy free requirements - please select the menu type required during the booking process.

A selection of cheeses from the British Isles with chutney and biscuits is available to pre-order as an additional course or as an alternative to desert. If you would like to add either of these to your meal, please select at the time of booking.
