Dining in First Class Style


Elegant Excursions Information

Let us take you on a memorable journey back to the time when comfort, service and quality were paramount.
Sit back and relax in the sumptuous surroundings of our Edwardian style  Wine and Dine train. We invite you to come on an Elegant Excursion with  us...

Everyone travels First Class with Elegant Excursions. Re-live the bygone age of luxury travel with Evening Dinner or traditional Sunday Lunch served at your  reserved table in our beautifully restored Pullman-style carriages
Since its formation, Elegant Excursions has taken great pride in its use of  some of the finest steam locomotives in the country. The Great Western  legend “City of Truro”, the mighty ”Black Prince‟, and the magnificent “Canadian Pacific” have all hauled our trains...

Elegant Excursions takes you through some of the most beautiful countryside in  England. Recently we followed the western edge of the idyllic Cotswold  Hills on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway, passing through the delightful country stations of Toddington,  Winchcombe and Gotherington, to the world famous Cheltenham Racecourse,  taking in stunning views of the distant Malvern Hills and Vale of  Evesham along the way. A new section of line has also now been opened  north of Toddington to Laverton, passing over the beautiful Stanway  Viaduct.

Elegant Excursions has an enviable reputation for high quality cuisine. Our  delicious lunches and dinners are freshly prepared and cooked by our  on-train Chef, and served to you in our luxurious dining carriages.

Why not join us on one of our very popular Special Events?  We have nights  of music to suit all tastes. Whether it be Jazz, 40s/50s Big Band Sound, or 60s/70s music, we have a night for you. For something really  special, join us on our Night at the Proms, which includes a firework  display to end the evening. Music appropriate for the event is played on board the train throughout the evening while you are enjoying your  dinner.
Table1During the course of the evening, we stop at a Station for you to enjoy live  music played by a professional band, under the cover of the Station  canopy. They are all nights to remember!
During 2010 we introduced a  new Murder Mystery troupe and a fantastic night was thoroughly enjoyed  by all on board.  It is an evening not to be missed and is returning  this year.
Christmas-time is special to us. We have two Christmas  Sunday Lunches and a special Christmas evening dinner - we are often  told by our guests that this is where their  Christmas really begins.
On boarding the train around 6.30 pm for a 7.00 pm  departure, you will be warmly greeted by the Train Manager, offered an aperitif, and escorted  to your reserved table. We will return you to your station of departure  at around 11.00 pm..

As you board the train at 12 noon, you will be warmly greeted with an  aperitif and escorted to your table. Then relax and enjoy a traditional  three course Sunday Lunch. Drinks may be pre-ordered at the time of  booking, or when you are seated at your table. Whatever you decide, we  are there to make your trip a memorable one.

If you would simply prefer a leisurely ride through lovely countryside  whilst enjoying a delicious 3 course Evening Dinner, then the Cotswold  Belle is perfect for you.

Our guests are very important to us on board every Sunday Lunch and Evening Event. It is our honour and pleasure to serve you, and this is why we  are acknowledged as the very best Heritage Wine and Dine Train in the  country.

Let us have the pleasure of saying to you - Welcome Aboard
