Fathers Day

Fathers Day is looming ever closer! Have you decided what to get Dad for Fathers Day? If not don't despair as we have a few suggestions.

1) Treat Dad to a day out on the Railway. For only £13.00 Dad can get a return ticket that allows him to travel backwards and fowards on the Railway all day, in fact you can squeeze in up to 5 round trips (2 diesel and 3 steam) if you really wanted to - that's 70 miles of trains through the Lake District!

2) Buy Dad a Carriage Experience. We offer a couple of private carriage experiences to make the day extra special. You can hire our private saloon the Eskdale Belle and travel on one trip in total privacy with a plush carriage that seats up to 15 people, prices start from £85. Alternatively go the whole hog and get him an Eskdale Belle Experience, not only do you get the Eskdale Belle private carriage for a round trip but you will be greeted by a member of our visitor services team upon arrival, escorted to the cafe for breakfast before being shown to your carriage and given a souvenir guide to remember the day by and a complimentary bottle of Cava.

When you arrive in Dalegarth you will be served lunch before enjoying some time with the spectacular views you would expect at the head of the valley and the foot of the Scafell mountains before heading back to Ravenglass to complete your day.

3) Treat Dad to a Cream Tea & Steam Exerience. This package gives Dad plus 1 other (Mum perhaps?) tickets to ride around on the Railway all day and a choice of which cafe in which they would like to enjoy a Cream Tea, Scone and sandwich. Prices start from £40.
