Join us for an evening excursion watching the Nene Valley countryside roll by from one of our heritage trains, with a good old-fashioned fish and chip supper. Our Travelling Post Office carriages will be within the rake so you'll be able to walk through the train to have a little look at how some of our post used to be moved around.

  • A selection of drinks will be available from our on-board bar.
  • Enjoy a traditional Fish & Chip supper as the train makes its way through the Nene Valley from Wansford to Peterborough and back.
  • Your Fish and Chips will be served at your seat on arrival at Peterborough. The train then heads non-stop to Yarwell to see the sunset (depending on the time of year). Here you can get off the train with your drink for a stroll around the station and gardens.
  • No dogs are permitted on dining events, with the exception of assistance dogs.
  • The train will depart from Wansford Station. Our on-train bar will remain open until 21:00.
  • Booking required to avoid disappointment.  
  • Tickets cover your train travel for one round trip together with a Fish and Chip supper.
