Blow off some steam at your next corporate event by hopping on the Cotswolds train in the Full Steam Ahead Experience by Tewkesbury Park
Nearly £1.3m was raised in 2016 by volunteers to reinstate the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway (GWSR) steam train to Broadway in Worcestershire. Almost 60 years since the station was demolished, a steam train pulled into Broadway Station in the Cotswolds in March this year.
To commemorate this historic moment, the events team at Tewkesbury Park
decided to create a delegates package tailored around a picturesque steam excursion through the Cotswolds (it stops at several of the area’s chocolate-box villages).
Sally Firth, Tewkesbury
press officer, said: ‘We initially created a leisure package and the uptake has been very good, so a couple of months on, we thought we’d offer it to the meeting and conference sector. It’s receiving such good feedback and the fact that it’s been achieved entirely by volunteers and fundraising has struck a chord with a lot of people.’
Priced at £220pp, the overnight package includes a meeting room at Tewkesbury Park’s
Duke of Gloucester Suite and lunch in the hotel’s lounge before departure on the train from Cheltenham Racecourse. A private three-course dinner awaits upon your return (also in the Duke of Gloucester Suite) before you head off to bed in either an Opulent or Indulgent Suite. Wake up to a full English breakfast the next day.
Available for a minimum of five guests and a maximum of 10 guests, this is ideal for a small company retreat or a way to treat your very best clients. Offer lasts until the end of October.
