Private Charter Trains to The 2010 Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor Resort

Train Chartering is supplying three private charter trains for travel to The 2010 Ryder Cup for Ryder Cup Limited. The trains will operate one return journey daily, Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd October, on this route: London Paddington via Reading, Swindon and Bristol Parkway to Newport in South Wales.

The 2010 Ryder Cup is taking place 1 - 3 October 2010 in Wales at the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport, Gwent. The Celtic Manor Resort is 4 miles from Newport Station which is a 2-hour rail journey from London. There is a coach transfer service between the station and the course as there is no pedestrian access.

The trains have first and standard (2nd) class carriages, as well as buffet cars and refreshment trolley service to first class. For online bookings please click here. Large groups can reserve private carriages in both classes with upgraded catering and client-specific branding; in this instance please email

Antonia Beggs, Assistant Staging Director of Ryder Cup Limited, is enthusiastic about the charter trains, "I believe that providing these charter trains is a great service to our clients, allowing them to make the most of the exciting golf."

Train Chartering has provided charter trains and private carriages since 1998 to corporate and individual clients as well as group travel organisers. Combining this experience with a wide range of train types, Train Chartering is in a unique position to tailor an appropriate rail travel experience.
