All aboard! It’s time to take your First Class Seat on-board our Cream Tea Service.
Upon arrival at the station, we invite you to pick up your tickets and our attendants will lead you to your seats. Your journey will begin in Stanhope and take you through the picturesque Weardale Countryside; the views from your seat will be stunning! The train will pass through green pastures and near a woodland river before we will stop on the 100ft high Etherly Viaduct for you to take in a wide view of the outstanding scenery. Our knowledgeable staff will share points of interest as warm tea is served.
Scrumptious home-made Fruit Scones will be served with fresh Clotted Cream & Rich Fruit Jam, to go with your unlimited hot drinks of Tea or Coffee. We’ll play ambient music to accompany this service to really lift your two-hour long experience. Our white linen service is set for a proper old fashioned English tea including miniature jam jars.
Our tea is perfect for a Mum and daughter outing, a retro 1950s vibe, a Girl’s Day Out activity or anyone who enjoys a good cream tea service. Consider dressing in your “Sunday Best” finery or vintage apparel to make it more entertaining.
The Café is open during the season (April-Oct) with more food and beverage options that you can bring on board. We are also making our tasty cakes and scones available to take home as a memory of your fantastic day out.
