The Retro Blackpool Belle
This August, we are travelling from Oxfordshire and through the Midlands and Cheshire to Blackpool, for the annual Blackpool Airshow. The trip is running on Saturday 10th August, and will be timed to allow you to see the airshow - a free event over the Blackpool seafront - and allow some time to visit the attractions this popular seaside resort has to offer.
Our famous on board ‘Real Ale Bar’ will be available, serving a variety of hand-pumped Real Ales, wines and hot snacks. We are the only mainline operator to serve real ales by hand-pump in Britain!
As usual, there will be three classes of accommodation to suit all budgets.
Our standard class accommodation is very comfortable, with tables and large windows allowing you to enjoy your Retro experience.
If you want a little extra luxury, First class is perfect. With wide, padded seats, our ex-Intercity First Class coaches provide the perfect ambience to enjoy the scenic journey.
Our Premier Dining option will make your day extra special. Our on-board chefs prepare a Great British Breakfast in the morning and a 3-course evening meal on the return journey. If you want to re-create the Golden Age of Train Travel, this is certainly your opportunity!
We can be flexible with requirements for children, any special requests or dietary needs. Please call us to enquire.
