PLEASE NOTE - ITINERARY HAS CHANGED SINCE BROCHURE PRODUCTION - NEW ITINERARY BELOW
The Bluebell Railway was one of the first preserved heritage lines in the country resulting in one of the finest collections of vintage steam locomotives and carriages many of which were preserved straight out of service from British Railways.
This day out starts at Sheffield Park Station, which was built in 1882 by the London Brighton and South Coast Railway. This station was really built to serve Lord Sheffield who owned the large house and estate about a mile away.
Once your board the steam train, travel down the tracks as you are served a Ploughman’s lunch on board. Tuck in to your lunch, which includes a delicious fresh salad, pickles, a crusty roll and a choice of ham, cheese or pate, before arriving at East Grinstead. Once you return to Sheffield Park Station, re-join your coach and make your way to a lovely local tea room. Here, you will be served cream tea which consists of two scones, cream, strawberry jam and an unlimited supply of tea!
