RAF 100 Celebrations

Tuesday 10th July - Lincoln & Peterborough to London

As part of the centenary of the RAF we are pleased to announce a very special train from Lincoln, Sleaford and Peterborough to London King’s Cross station as part of the RAF 100 celebrations. The 10th July 2018 will see a major celebration in London including a fly past of up to 100 current and historic RAF aircraft and a stunning parade of personnel from the service.

Working with the RAF 100 team Tornado will be at the head of our train as we travel from Lincolnshire to London and we are pleased to offer two fabulous packages as well as Dining and First Class seating.

For the ultimate day out choose a Platinum package and travel with us in First Class Dining where you will be treated to a Champagne breakfast on the way to London and a four course evening meal on the return. Your transfers in London from King’s Cross to the Mall and return are included as is access to the rooftop terrace of the Trafalgar Hotel. Formerly the offices of the Cunard Line, the hotel sits directly under the flight path, so you will get unrivalled views with lunch included. In the afternoon, your package includes access to a very special event on Horseguards where you will be able to get up close to various aircraft. There will be an RAF host to answer questions and ensure this is a very special event that will live long in the memory.

Our Gold Class package includes full travel on the special train with Champagne breakfast on the outward journey and a four course meal on the return.
