Enjoyed the visit. The cafe on Britannia served delicious food. The staff on the train did an excellent job. The food was mediocre. The table clothes made getting in and out of our seats a tricky manoeuvre.

We had a fabulous trip to Padstow. The train was beautiful and comfortable, although the seats were a `tight fit`. The food was gorgeous and the staff were very courteous and friendly. We would definitely recommend you take a trip on this train

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
