Founded in 1985 by an ex-railwayman with a passion and enthusiasm for all things connected with railways, The Sidings is built around 5 Pullman style railway carriages. These have been developed to create the ultimate railway experience. Part of the carriages have been converted in to a dining area, allowing tables of four to overlook the track. Other carriages at this unique venue have been converted in rooms, allowing guests to stay and enjoy The Sidings overnight.
