On Mothering Sunday we give every mother (and grandmother) a little gift of primroses.

The Easter Egg Hunt is deservedly very popular. Each child spotting the hidden “eggs”receives a chocolate bunny.

On Fathers’ Day  we enter all fathers and grandfathers into a prize draw.

 The Teddy Bears Picnics  reveal all the railway’s resident teddy bears having fun and we invite families with their picnics to come and join them.

At the Steam Gala all our locomotives will be in steam and we invite visiting engines to join us. It’s a great opportunity to take very atmospheric photographs.

Santa Special trains will run every weekend in December up to 17th and also Saturday 23rd December. These very special events have become extremely popular over recent years.  Because of the great demand you must book your tickets in advance using our online booking pages.
