Join us for an exclusive festive event in the company of the historic locomotive 92. Squadron. Named after the famous Spitfire squadron based at Biggin Hill during the Battle of Britain in 1940, this Bulleid 'Battle of Britain' class pacific locomotive will be running on the heritage Nene Valley Railway exclusively for our customers on Friday 3rd December. Get into the festive spirit with carol singers, mulled wine, mince pies and even a visit from Santa as we wind our way through the picturesque Nene Valley.
We’ll stay at a selected 3 or 4-star hotel. The comfortable rooms are en suite and other facilities include a bar and restaurant.
From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to our hotel, stopping en-route at a magical Christmas Market. Stock up on Christmas gifts or indulge in festive treats from cosy stalls selling unique, handmade and unusual gifts and crafts, decorations and delicious produce. After checking in to the hotel we enjoy our relaxing overnight stay.
A festive treat awaits us today as we head to Wansford station. Here, we’re greeted by a brass band and carol singers who perform a medley of Christmas carol favourites on the platform. Next, we board our train with the historic locomotive 92. Squadron, resplendent in British Railways malachite green, for a picturesque, steam hauled round trip journey on the Nene Valley Railway to Peterborough. During our 75-minute trip, we enjoy mulled wine and mince pies while being entertained by carol singers as well as a visit from Santa himself, bearing gifts for all, getting us all into the festive spirit! Later, we rejoin the coach for our journey home.
You will have the option to book your own flights independently with the operator.
