Details

Come and join us for the opportunity to enjoy Welsh tea and cake on the move, while travelling serenely through our beautiful Powys scenery in our elegant historic carriages.

On three dates this Summer, we’ll be serving you a light afternoon tea, with locally made sandwiches, Caerphilly cheese scones, bara brith and other local cakes. Plus a choice of teas.

You will travel one way in one of our tea cars. On the other leg you’ll enjoy the Edwardian elegance of one of the carriages built for the opening of our line. Our in-carriage steward will be happy to answer questions as you journey serenely through the rural landscape of Mid Wales and there will be musical accompaniment.

Trains depart Llanfair Caereinion station at 13.50, and will return to Llanfair by 16.30.

Tickets are priced at £24.50, and discounted fares are not available on this train. As we have just installed tables in our African First Class carriage, the first 30 customers to book will be served tea in this carriage. Other passengers will be served in the cosy ambience of our Austrian carriages that have proved so popular since we started running tea trains in 2016.

By Rail - The Welshpool Raven Square Station is approx. 1 mile from the mainline (Shrewsbury - Machynlleth - Aberystwyth) station. Passengers arriving by rail should head towards the center of town and continue straight ahead at the crossroads. Beyond here the road begins to climb before dropping back down to the roundabout at Raven Square.

By Road - Both the main stations are located adjacent to the A458 main road. Welshpool Raven Square station (Postcode is SY21 7LT) is at the west end of the town (follow the brown signs or A458 Machynlleth / Dolgellau).

Llanfair Caereinion station (Postcode SY21 0SF) is at the east end of the town. Coming in from the east (Welshpool end) on the A45, the station is first on the left immediately after the 30mph speed restriction starts. From the west continue on the A458 and follow the brown signs.

There is plenty of free parking at both Welshpool and Llanfair Caereinion stations. Please note that there are no car parks at the intermediate stations.

Notes

We have two main stations, which makes filling this form a little harder. In general we would say that the disabled parking at Welshpool is a little more convenient than Llanfair for wheelchair users as it is near to the main entrance ( at Llanfair it is a little over 50m away). We have lifts for wheelchairs at both ends to help customers alight the carriages. Advance notice of customers using standard sized wheelchairs is not necessary, but much appreciated. Most standard carriages are accessible by standard sized wheelchairs and some have been adapted to take wider and electric wheelchairs. These are not always available, please check before travel.
