The Hawksworth Saloon

Have you ever been stuck for ideas for unusual gifts, days out, or really different ways to celebrate that special occasion; anniversary, birthday, wedding breakfast. Or need an innovative, corporate venue for team building, product launches, staff incentives or retirement parties?


The Hawksworth Observation Saloon offers a unique solution. This beautiful historic inspection carriage has been restored to its original glory and is now available for limited, exclusive hire for up to twenty friends, family or guests.


You are guaranteed an absolutely memorable experience; travelling in style along the longest heritage railway in England, in the comfort of your own private carriage. Sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery while your steward serves you with a delicious, locally sourced lunch.


On arrival at the coast, there is a little time to stretch your legs, take some sea air, before indulging in freshly baked, home made cakes and a clotted cream tea on your return journey


The Hawksworth Observation Saloon is owned by the WSRA and operationally managed by the West Somerset Railway plc .  Please contact them for booking details.
