Cream Teas

There is no better place to enjoy a traditional treat of a Dorset cream tea, than by travelling on Dorset’s premier heritage railway, watching the countryside pass as you enjoy fine tea and scones.

The cows you see from the window may well have produced the cream, and no visit to Dorset is complete without having enjoyed this unique experience.

The cream tea is a diesel hauled service and depart Swanage station at 1440 arriving back at 15:42.

The cream tea consists of two mixed fruit scones, clotted cream, jam and tea.
