A Brief Encounter & Leighton Hall 
including afternoon tea 

Carnforth Station Heritage Centre and the Brief Encounter Refreshment Room opened in 2003 following 3 years work to renovate the derelict buildings of Carnforth Station. Visitors from all over the world, come to enjoy the nostalgia of the station, which has been restored to its 1940s glory when it was used as the setting for David Lean’s film “Brief Encounter”. In the afternoon we visit Leighton Hall for an entertaining house tour, take a stroll through the pretty gardens before witnessing a breath taking display of falconry from our birds of prey, weather permitting. Finally, we visit the tea rooms, serving afternoon tea like it used to be, in proper tea cups, with sandwiches and homemade cakes especially made for our party.
