What can I expect on the day

Plunge yourself into a world of nostalgia with a steam railway weekend break for two. These delightful weekend breaks take place at the Great Central Railway in Leicestershire and you will be spending two nights in the four star Best Western Premier Yew Lodge Hotel, Kegworth, Derbyshire

The hotel has the feeling of a country house with a lovely garden in the town of Kegworth, Derbyshire. Individually designed bedrooms are comfortable and quiet, with breakfast and dinner being taken in the Orchard Restaurant.

Your weekend of heritage steam starts on the Friday with an early check in at the hotel, followed by a three-course dinner in the evening. On Saturday evening you are booked in to the first class dining car of the evening steam railway departure from the Loughborough railway station, with a full dinner onboard as you enjoy a return trip on the full length of the mainline steam railway line. Your break also includes a full day 'runabout' ticket, so you can spend all day at the railway visiting the museum and travelling on the trains between stations.

After a second night at the hotel and a leisurely breakfast in the morning, it's time for you to check out of your room as your steam railway weekend break comes to a close. These superb breaks are for two people with breakfast included on each day, dinner at the hotel on Friday night and a steam train dinner on the Saturday night. The perfect gift for couples!

Great experience on the steam train. However the hotel wasn't up to expectations. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and was very noisy due to planes going over. Had to pay extra for our meal despite only having one course and not three. Had to pay extra for a pot of tea because we didn't drink alcohol. Would be a five star experience if the hotel had been better.
Yes, I recommend this product.
