Reading holidaymakers can travel to Cornwall on an iconic steam train

Berkshire holidaymakers can take a ride on a superb steam locomotive as it weaves its way from Paddington to Penzance.

The 61306 Mayflower will depart from London Paddington Station on Tuesday before reaching Reading and eventually crossing England.

B1 engines are capable of carrying express passenger trains across the country and were often used to travel East Anglia from Scotland.

The trip, which gives travelers the option of stopping in Plymouth or Penzance next week, will also pass through Exeter to visit the sites using a double-headed train.

Passengers will enjoy the trip in a 1960s open car while seated in tables of four.

In higher end cars, tea and coffee will be offered at your table.

If you want the full luxury experience, there is the Pullman-style dining experience where cars from the 50s or 60s will be adorned with paneled walls, table lamps and curtains, and the most comfortable seats.

A spokesperson for Steam Dreams said: “With stylish cars from the 1950s or 1960s, paneled walls, table lamps and curtains, combined with our most comfortable seating and the highest level of service make the Pullman Style Dining our most popular class of travel.

“On a typical day trip, you will be served a three-course champagne breakfast on the outward journey and a dinner on the return with canapes.”

Prices start at £ 325 per person and include a three night stop in Cornwall. Accommodation is not included in the price.

Reservations can be made here.
