2012 Cheltenham Festival train details below:

Train Chartering announces its offer for private First Class charter trains with Pullman dining to the 2012 Cheltenham Festival. Travelling between London Euston and Cheltenham Spa on Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 14th and Friday 16th March 2012, these trains and the included benefits are the stylish way to enjoy the 'shining jewel in Jump racing's crown'.

Guests of Train Chartering or of our clients will be met on the concourse of London's Euston Station and at Cheltenham Spa and escorted to their reserved seats in the waiting private train.

The dining on these First Class trains is in the Pullman tradition, which has now largely disappeared from other train services. Chefs prepare the food from fresh ingredients in onboard kitchens, and uniformed stewards serve it to passengers' tables. There is an extensive bar and wine list to accompany the meal and the journey.

Passengers can take advantage of included coach transfers between Cheltenham Spa and the racecourse, in both directions, which minimises anxiety about travel arrangements.

Train Chartering can arrange a limited number of private carriages, subject to availability on booking, for those clients seeking the ultimate privacy or specialised dining or entertainment options.


Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th £299 per person, Friday 16th £309 per person.
