What you can expect at the Railway this month!
What's happening at the railway in April!
This month we celebrate Easter at the Railway! Our operating days this month vary, due to the Easter bank holiday, which we will indeed be open for! For dates and our operating train times please check out our Timetable and Fares page, HERE.
From April 4th to April 16th we will be running our EASTER EGGSPRESS train. With the purchase of any All-Line or Single Line ticket you can take part in our free Easter trail. Don’t forget to bring pencils and pens for your Easter Eggspress activity sheet and of course, if you manage to complete the trail you can receive an Easter surprise from our gift shop.
If you are joining us on either 9th or 10th of April, you can use the code ‘EASTERFIZZ‘ at the checkout, to receive £2.00 off a Fizz Afternoon Cream Tea Box. Celebrate Easter in style, sit back, relax, enjoy the fizz, oh and don’t forget to look out for the trackside letters for the Easter trail!
Please note Fizz Afternoon Cream Tea Boxes must be purchased in advance to your visit.
