Join us for an exclusive journey through the heart of Norfolk's countryside while enjoying a selection of gin, schnapps and cocktails from the Norfolk-based Black Shuck Distillery.

You will be greeted on arrival with a speciality Gin & Tonic, before boarding our heritage steam* pulled train for a Black Shuck Gin masterclass at your table.


During your journey you will enjoy tales of Black Shuck, while sampling a selection of spirits and schnapps from the Black Shuck range. A small selection of cold meats (houmous for vegetarians), olives and crusty bread will be included as part of the experience.
