Fun for all the family
Bluebell Railway is a family friendly visitor attraction, with plenty of activities and things to do across the line.
You can hop off at Horsted Keynes, a station you may recognise from Downton Abbey, The Woman in Black and Muppet’s Most Wanted. But the station is not only popular with filmmakers – it also boasts our Carriage and Wagon Workshop, which is opposite the Elephant Van on Platform 5. Inside you will find soft play activities for younger children.
Then, why not alight at Kingscote? Here you will find our popular outdoor play area – the perfect way to let off steam.
And let’s not forget Sheffield Park, where you can learn the science and stories behind steam in our interactive exhibition SteamWorks! on Platform 1. Set among some of our fabulous collection of locomotives in the running shed, you can get hands-on with interactive displays and even have a go on our Stepney locomotive driving experience!
Then head to Platform 2 and find our extensive museum. Here we tell the story of the railways, and the Bluebell Railway in particular, through a stunning collection of artefacts, display panels and videos. Visitors are invited to pull a signal lever in the Victorian signal box and children can do a quiz and win a badge.
