Mothering Sunday Cake Train


Treat your mum to a special trip on board the Tanfield Railway’s Mothering Sunday Cake train! Enjoy a selection of cakes on board a Victorian carriage hauled by a vintage steam locomotive as it passes through the picturesque Causey valley on the world's oldest railway.

Our traditionally dressed catering staff will serve a selection of cakes including Victoria sponge, chocolate cake, carrot cake, banoffee and strawberry tarts, and chocolate strawberries - with plenty of tea throughout the journey. The Cake train operates on Sunday 26th March departing Andrews House station at various intervals during the day.

Pre-booking is essential as all food is made to order for each train. The ticket price also includes unlimited train travel for the whole day and one cake train journey, so feel free to make a day of it.

Further information and ticket details released soon.
