Get in touch to discuss the options for your private event!

Whether you’re planning a party, business function, gender reveal or any other type of occasion, why not consider something a little different?

Here at the Bodmin Railway, we pride ourselves in offering the unexpected. The unusual moments in life are the ones we remember most vividly, and that’s why a private event at the Bodmin Railway will really give your guests something to remember.

From afternoon functions with tapas and drinks on our 1950s station platform on a bright summers day. Or evening of entertainment onboard a chugging steam locomotive with all your closest friends and family. We can offer the unusual and the exciting.



The possibilities are endless

With various options for spaces, catering and activities to suit the style and tone of event, let Bodmin Railway craft you a niche and personal event for whatever your occasion.

Celebrate with us!

From hen do’s, wedding anniversaries, engagements, to birthday parties, a simple way to travel in style and celebrate is to book one of our Special Occasion Extra’s. From decorated tables or compartments, to our riding with our ‘Happy Birthday’ headboard on the front of the locomotive, we have a number of extra’s to make your celebration trip to Bodmin Railway a little more special.

Inside one of our Vintage Coaches

Ornate interiors, Bakelite, polished wood, the velvety embrace of the seats… Give your gathering the wow factor inside one of our vintage carriages, the perfect all-weather venue for smaller parties. Why not pair our carriages up with entertainment on the platform to suit a larger group? We’ve held everything from film screenings to workshops to wreath making classes in these coaches– so the sky’s your limit when coming up with a plan!

On the station platform

As well as our trains and vintage carriages, the station platform at Bodmin General serves as the perfect alternative venue for all kinds of events.

Imagine the atmosphere; hanging baskets and bunting, the sound of live music mingling with the hiss of a heritage steam engine as the evocative smells of an engine burning coal drift across the 1950’s platform. The Station platform is the perfect venue for a daytime or evening event, from a laid back get-together with your nearest and dearest to a jazzy Great Gatsby affair with cocktails, canapes and sequins in the station! Whatever shape your event may take, our station platform is a very special venue and is sure to set the scene.

A One-of-a-kind Venue

Whatever your ambition or budget, we can accommodate – after all, we’ve seen everything from steampunks and Victoriana, to impromptu ukulele playing and First World War singalongs!

From chic and classic to simply outrageous, we can tailor make the perfect event for your occasion.

Just get in touch with us to discuss your ideas.
