The Champagne Train

Your first class Champagne tasting experience . . .

November 4th

The Champagne Train

The Severn Valley Railway in partnership with Nickolls & Perks are delighted to welcome you aboard The Champagne Train!

Join us for a journey of effervescent excellence; a Champagne tasting experience on the Severn Valley Railway! This is a truly unique experience; travel through the spectacular Severn Valley in our 1936-built luxurious first class carriage (once hauled by the Flying Scotsman), whilst sipping a selection of our favourite Champagnes and enjoying our informative, yet informal, overview of the drinks you are tasting by professional staff. A journey fit for any Champagne lover. 

Working with our friends Nickolls and Perks, the company are one of the UK’s oldest wine & spirit merchants. Established in Stourbridge in 1797 and recently shortlisted for Decanter Magazine’s Bordeaux, Champagne and Regional Merchant of the year 2018, we cannot wait to see them on our rails. 

Your tasting experience will include:
  • Welcoming sparkling cocktail to get the tasting session started and the fizz flowing as we leave the station!
  • Entertaining and informative overview of Champagne history & production.
  • Tasting sequence of four champagnes, offering a wide spectrum of tasting notes, served with appropriate nibbles.  
  • A “Heads or Tails” trivia quiz - the winner receives a mini bottle of Champagne. 
  • Professional staff will run the event, giving an overview of each Champagne and explaining the flavour profile and answering any questions as they are sampled.

The package includes:
  • Reserved, first class travel on a single journey from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth, or Bridgnorth to Kidderminster.
  • Full day 'Freedom of the Line' ticket (normally £19.50) permitting travel before or after the tasting experience on our public service trains, so you can spend a whole day on the Railway .This ticket permits FREE entry into The Engine House at Highley if you have time. And remember, we have pubs at both Bridgnorth and Kidderminster too!
