This week the Comet has teamed up with The Cathedrals Express to offer two free Pullman Style Dining tickets for a trip to York, worth nearly £500.

The winners will board at Stevenage station and will be offered champagne and orange juice, accompanied by pastries, followed by a full English breakfast.

On Saturday, March 29, as the train, which is scheduled to be hauled by A4 class locomotive Sir Nigel Gresley, makes its way through stunning countryside, you can just sit back and relax in elegance and comfort in the 1950s wood panelled carriages.

The winners will arrive at York and will have four hours to explore the fascinating walled city, with its rich heritage and numerous historic attractions, including the impressive York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe.

On the return journey the winners will be served a five course dinner, including canapés to start. Tea and coffee will be available throughout the journey.
