Details

Join us over the May bank holiday for a great day of family fun…!

As well as steam train rides in beautiful 19th Century coaches, you can take a peek ‘behind the scenes’ into our Restoration Shed or you can have a go at driving a diesel locomotive under supervision for just £10!

NEW for 2018, enjoy our inflatable assault course with bouncy castle and slides, meet the alpacas and other furry friends at the petting zoo for a small additional charge.

Have a go on our famous Pump Trolley, featured on BBC East Children in Need broadcast last year.
