Looking for a lazy Sunday afternoon treat? Why not travel in style with the Northampton and Lamport Railway’s Cream Tea Special?
Take a ride on one of our Cream Tea Special trains with the family and ride through the Northamptonshire countryside as a locomotive pulls you along on a 4-mile round trip; while enjoying a lovely cream tea, served to you by our dedicated volunteers.
Travel in first class and enjoy a cream tea served with tea or coffee (other drinks available – not included in the ticket price). Afterwards, enjoy a walk along the Brampton Valley Way a 14 mile “linear park” alongside the historic Northampton to Market Harborough line, or take another ride (2nd Class) on the train with your All Day Rover ticket.
