The vintage steam train where you can have a full English breakfast and a drink on your journey

Vintage Trains are set to run a charter journey from the Midlands to North Somerset in June as a historic British Pullman welcomes visitors for a unique 90 mile journey. The trip, which will depart Birmingham on Saturday, June 25, will call at Stourbridge Junction, Droitwich Spa, Worcester, Cheltenham Spa, Bristol, and Weston-super-Mare.

The Weston Air Show Explorer is perfect for passengers wishing to go to the Weston Air Show, which takes place the same weekend.

Packages range from £655 to £79, with a wide variety of refreshments and snacks available to guests. The most expensive option, the “First Compartment” package, offers a “Private first-class compartment for up to six people with light refreshments including Danish pastries, sandwiches and cake, tea and coffee, all served at your seat.”

Those understandably not willing to pay such fees could settle for seating in the open carriages where alcoholic beverages and food are available for delivery.

The Pullman option provides travellers with the chance to dine in an original Pullman Car with a full English Breakfast and four-course evening dinner, tea and coffee, all served to your seat.

Alternatively, passengers may want to leave the train at Bristol and enjoy the city known for its maritime history, Banksy street art and sprawling Shopping Quarter, as well as its floating bars and restaurants along Harbourside in the charming Old City.

The airshow itself will deliver an action-packed flying programme, with a selection of cutting edge and beautiful vintage aircraft including the Battle of Britain Memoral Flight and iconic RAF Red Arrows. The Event Village will feature an air display team, with stands where visitors can meet the pilots, and local and national traders offering everything from artwork and books to toys and furniture, family activities, a fairground, food stalls and bars.

Weston Air Festival will take place on Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26. To find out more about the train journey, click here.
