We have implemented a brand NEW timetable now that we are open. If you plan to visit, you MUST pre-book your tickets online before 9am on your chosen date of travel. We cannot guarantee to sell tickets on the day of travel. Our new timetable gives you the option to pick your departure and return times, however once booked you MUST travel on these trains. Please ensure that you have purchased train times that you are happy with. Single journey tickets are also available.
Customers will be required to wear a face covering whilst on-site at the railway. This face covering must be worn at all times, unless you are medically exempt or under 11 years old, including whilst you are in the carriages. To book a wheelchair you must call us on 01229 717171. Dogs are welcome on board for £1.50 each (not permitted in Joan Observation Carriage). Unfortunately, we cannot take bikes at this time.
Before you purchase tickets please ensure you have picked your train times, picked your carriage and compartment, watched our video and read all of our opening information! This all outlines what you can expect when you visit us.
Tickets are now live and can be booked online for dates until 21st June 2021. Tickets after that date cannot yet be booked.
