Mince Pie Specials - 27th December 2017 to January 1st 2018
Had enough of being stuck indoors, on the sofa watching television, over Christmas and Boxing Day? Come and see us for a free mince pie as you relax behind one of our steam trains!
Our ‘Mince Pie Specials' are running for six days from Wednesday 27th December through to Monday 1st January, inclusive, come and welcome the New Year in with style. Our Mince Pie Specials have plenty of seats available so you don't need to worry about pre-booking.
Our trains provide a relaxing trip back in time in railway carriages drawn by one of our beautifully restored steam engines, down the glorious valley of the River Dart with great unimpaired countryside views, now that the leaves have fallen, plus occasional glimpses of canoeists battling with the water torrents.
There's also a well-stocked gift and model railway shop to visit at Buckfastleigh which offers a selection of unusual gifts, including railway books, videos, and plenty for Thomas the Tank Engine enthusiasts. And you can even buy a gift voucher for someone to become a train driver for a day!
As well as the free mince pies our on train buffet sells hot and cold drinks. There are more substantial snacks available as well at Buckfastleigh station’s refreshment rooms for our hungrier guests.
