Book in advance - beat the rush

You can book a group journey with us up to 52 weeks before you travel, meaning you will have plenty of time to prepare and plan your fun field trip.

We have a dedicated team based in London who deal with group bookings 10 or more people. Keeping tabs on your group is made easier by booking an exclusive carriage.
