Private Train Carriages to The Cheltenham Festival 2011
Train Chartering is offering private First Class carriages for travel to The Cheltenham Festival 2011 from London.  On Tuesday 15th, Wednesday 16th and Friday 18th March, the carriages are in the Tote’s charter trains, and on Thursday 17th March, on scheduled trains.

The Cheltenham Festival 2010 is taking place 15 – 18 June 2011.  There is an included coach transfer service between the station and the racecourse.

The Cheltenham Festival is a horse racing event in England.
National Hunt racing at the Cheltenham Festival

From Wiki:
"The Cheltenham Festival is the most prestigious meeting in the National Hunt racing calendar in the United Kingdom, and has race prize money second only to the Grand National. It is an event where many of the best British and Irish trained horses race against each other, the extent of which is relatively rare during the rest of the season.
The festival takes place annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse in CheltenhamGloucestershire. The meeting is often very popular with Irish visitors, mostly because of that nation's affinity with horse racing, but also because it usually coincides with Saint Patrick's Day, a national holiday in celebration of the patron saint of Ireland.
Huge amounts of money are bet during festival week, with hundreds of millions of pounds being gambled over the four days. Cheltenham is often noted for its atmosphere, most notably the "Cheltenham roar", which refers to the enormous amount of noise that the crowd generates as the starter raises the tape for the first race of the festival."

The First Class carriages in the charter trains include Pullman dining; a Great British breakfast after a welcoming glass of champagne or Buck’s Fizz on the way to the races, and a four-course dinner on the return to London.

Provided complimentary with each private carriage on the charter trains are:
- racecards
- newspapers
- souvenir badges
- (worth up to £80 each) Club Enclosure badges
- access to on-course private marquee with full betting facilities and pay bar
- guest speakers who will ‘mark your card’.

Prices for a 42-seat private carriage in the charter trains for orders before 31st December are £12,150 on Tuesday and Wednesday and £12,500 on Friday; from 1st January, prices increase to £12,500 and £12,950.  Prices for the private carriage on the scheduled trains on Thursday are on application.

Train Chartering has provided charter trains and private carriages since 1998 to corporate and individual clients as well as group travel organisers.  Combining this experience with a wide range of train types, Train Chartering is in a unique position to tailor an appropriate rail travel experience.
