Following requests, we are delighted to now offer a range of steam hauled lunchtime dining trains. This brings the very best of fine Dorset fare to the lunchtime patron. These trains are ideally timed for day visitors to the area or for you and your party to take the opportunity to promenade along Swanage’s Victorian seafront and pier after your meal.

The Dorsetman departs Swanage station at 1255 returning at 1542. Please note: Bookings close on the Wednesday prior to the date of travel.
