Eat-in or takeaway

Our Scenic Café is open for coffee and breakfast before your journey begins and continues throughout, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to purchase refreshments.

But don’t feel obligated to return to your seat straight away! Our Scenic Café carriage comes with its own seating from which to take in the experience outside. It’s up to you to choose your journey.
