About the event
To celebrate the King’s coronation on 6th May, we will be serving Afternoon Teas in our ‘Street Party Marquee’. The event will include a singer, party decorations and long tables from where you can view the coronation proceedings on a large screen.
Priced at £30 per person for adults or £15 for children, each tea will be served in its own box which can be easily carried around the site if you wish. There is no restriction on group size on this occasion but please let us know if you want to sit together. We will try and accommodate all such requests.
Tickets for the Marquee can be purchased online. Tickets are also available for the Train and Ticket Office. These can be purchased in person at the station or by telephone. Each guest must have a ticket.
We can accommodate larger groups in the marquee as tables are more ‘communal’ and the atmosphere will be a more celebratory one on such a special day.
Guests will be encouraged to explore our lovely wildlife path, spot the secret fairy doors and enjoy the amazing wood carvings. The bird hide overlooking the large pond will be open, the station borders and tubs will be a riot of colour and there are plenty of picnic benches in the wild flower meadow and along the platform to enjoy the gorgeous setting.
We can accommodate vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free or specific allergy diets but we are very sorry it will not be possible to accommodate food preferences on this occasion. Please ensure you let us know about any allergies at the time of booking and again on arrival.
There is limited parking at the train, so where possible, please use public transport. The X5 bus passes the train on a regular basis.
