Scones, Trains, and Automobiles!

Reading time: < 1 minutes...

Well, that’s a first! We’re off for Afternoon Tea in a railway carriage that doesn’t go anywhere (No! NOT another rail strike day!!!) 😁

In another first, we had snow today! The first for two years!!

Our visit to ‘Carriages of Cambridge‘ was a Christmas gift from our great friends, Jo & Janet, and we’d just got around to arranging it.


Thanks girls! 😻😻

Located east of Huntingdon, in Fen Drayton, it was a shortish 40-minute drive for our unique experience of Afternoon Tea onboard a static train carriage! πŸ‘

Wow! Even if you’re NOT a train fanatic, you’ll be impressed with what they’ve recreated here. The attention to detail is fantastic, and if you listen hard enough, once seated (above the noise of happy punters tucking into excellent food) then you’ll hear the gentle sound of a diddley-dee train… and, feel a slight rocking motion (or was that just me?). There’s even steam coming from the carriages!

There’s plenty on offer from the Menus – probably too much! With three sorts of Afternoon Tea, something for everyone… they even do Doggy Bags! πŸ‘

All in all a GREAT experience! And unique too! It had a very professional feel about it all and I’m sure we’ll be back. If you’re tempted, you can book HERE.

Thanks again Jo & Janet – we had a great time! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜
