Why not take your Dad on a trip along the railway in a steam or diesel locomotive. Dads travel FREE on Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway, when accompanied by a fare paying passenger. There is also a free bus service between Princes Risborough and Chinnor stations, with trains departing throughout the day. Make sure you don’t miss out on the superb cream teas!

Father’s Day trains will also be leaving from Cholsey & Wallingford Railway. Travel is half price for Dads when accompanied by a child.
