Springing into Easter

Springing Bank Holiday – 10 – 13 April 2020

Come and join us for a springtime themed bunny hunt and nature trails for children this Easter bank holiday weekend.

All day travel is included in the ticket price, so hop on and off at each of our stations as much as you like throughout the day.

Enjoy an Easter day out

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, where you will find our Carriage and Wagon Workshop, which is opposite the Elephant Van on Platform 5. Inside the Elephant Van you will find soft play activities for younger children.

Then, why not alight at Kingscote? Here you will find our popular outdoor children’s 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.

  • Why not pick up a Spring Passport while you’re here? Packed with fun challenges and activities, complete 15 of the 20 things to see and do to claim your free pop badge.

You can find out more about children’s activities at Bluebell Railway here.
