The Bucks Railway Centre is not just a great day out for train enthusiasts big and small, it’s also an ideal venue with lots of retro chic. Our latest photos show some mums enjoying a stylish high tea in the Oxford Room whilst children played happily with mini train tracks and explored the carriages (and chased up and down the concourse). This was followed by their own tea actually on the platform! A big hit with all the kids. Food was provided by Jane Bray, including mouth watering scones and the prettiest cupcakes that tasted every bit as good as they looked. The final cup of tea of the day was enjoyed in the privacy of Queen Victoria’s own dining carriage.
