Dad Rides Free on the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway
Every Dad TRAVELS FREE with any accompanied ticket holder on Father’s Day, 18 June 2017 on the Chinnor & Risborough Railway. Dad will probably appreciate the steam and diesel locomotive hauling his train and with the Red Kites often whirling overhead, it is surely going to be his perfect treat!
All the while your steam locomotive is lazily billowing steam past your window or the vintage diesel is growling its way along the line on the gentle 8-mile round trip. The volunteers will be making their way through the train with an at-seat service of tea, coffee and light refreshments, and they will even have Chinnor Railway Ale onboard.
Your travel tickets are valid all day long and you can travel on whichever train you choose – there are plenty of seats on every train and the choice of where to sit is entirely yours!
N.B. If you are looking for our delicious cream teas served in the Afternoon Tea Car on the 13.30, 15.00 and 16.30 departures from Chinnor please see here.
Steam hauled trains depart Chinnor station at 11.00, 12.15, 13.30, 15.00 and 16.30.
Each round trip takes up to 55 minutes in duration.
