Make sure you book your tickets in advance to avoid missing out on this event and one of the last galas of the year! There are 2 ticket options - you can either book a compartment and here the price covers up to 4 people (you can add extra seats up to a maximum of 8 in the compartment if you wish) or you can purchase individual adult or child (age 4-16) tickets in our open carriage seating. Children aged 3 and under travel free. The ticketing system will take you through the steps including adding optional extra seats if required.
Face coverings must be worn on the train as per government instructions for public transport. The exception to this requirement is if you have booked a compartment. Whilst in your compartment your face covering can be removed.
There is limited space in our 1950s style carriages so we ask that, where possible, pushchairs are not carried onto the train but left under the platform shelter where they will be safe.
Every Tuesday and Thursday at 10am come along and start some exercise and meet new people. We are currently looking for an over 60 and Over 65 goal...
