Elopements. Celebrations. Weddings.
However you wish your day to go, we can help you!
This past month, Bodmin Railway has been approved by Cornwall Council (Ceremonies in Cornwall) for our wedding licence. As a venue we can now officially hold civil ceremonies and weddings throughout various areas of the station. Whether you want to elope in our signal box or hire the full 1950’s station and steam train, we can help you build your dream day.
Positioned in the heart of Cornwall, Bodmin Railway boasts a one-of-a-kind venue, offering a chance to step back in time to get wed and celebrate. Filled with immeasurable historical value, the 1950’s station resides within the small town of Bodmin, with its two branch lines meandering through the Cornish countryside. Impressive views of the Glynn Valley, Camel Trail and the River Camel and River Fowey, can be seen along the 13-mile roundtrip on our heritage steam railway. Only a stone’s throw from both Bodmin Registry office and Lanyhdrock Golf Club and Hotel, Bodmin Railway offers a venue that is both independent but within reach of local amenities to help package together your day.
Elope in our Signal Box!
Planning (or not planning) an intimate getaway wedding and looking for a one-of-a-kind venue… how about our Signal Box!
Fitting up to 10 adults, including bride/groom and registrars, the Signal Box has plenty of room for just those special few to watch you get wed. Elope on a non-operational day and enjoy the peace and quiet of an empty station. Snap your wedding photo’s all around the station and board one of our stationary coaches for your wedding breakfast. Enjoy an Afternoon Cream Tea box with you nearest and dearest and deck the stationary coach in your wedding theme and colours. Pop some fizz and cut your cake, as you spend the morning or afternoon hours intimately celebrating you as the newly weds.
We have a variety of stations for your wedding pictures!
Opt for the Gylnn Belle, Boscarne Bell or Cornish Belle Package and get photos at all our stations! Travel through the Cornish countryside to both Bodmin Parkway and Boscarne Junction, hopping off at both ends to get a variety of pictures.
