The Fish and Chip Specials

The Fish and Chip Specials

Swanage Railway, Swanage, Dorset,

oin us and Fox & Edwards Events for a steam train journey with a difference - a fish and chips meal to enjoy!

Take in the picturesque scenery on a round trip from Norden station (where there is car parking - postcode BH20 5DW) in a heritage carriage from the 1950s or early 1960s, hauled by a steam locomotive. The trip takes approximately 70 minutes - perfect for getting a good "fill" of nostalgia or celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special occasions. The fish and chips meal, bottle of water and baked sweet treat (flapjack or biscuits) are served at the half-way point in the journey for the return trip. Alternative meal options are offered for those who prefer not to have fish and these are selected when purchasing tickets. Reviews for other Fox & Edwards Events journeys include: "It was nice to have a bit of nostalgia from childhood memories" "Staff was pleasant and helpful polite, questions through emails was quickly answered fantastic service" "Lovely relaxing day out" "Thank you to all who helped make our day feel really special. We all felt like VIP's. Well done!" We are currently unable to welcome dogs on this trip. Please note that tables are arranged in fours. Groups of two may be seated on the same table as other groups of two.
