A day on the railway such as the GWR offers value for money and an insight into a gentler age of train travel. This re-creation of a bygone era is dynamic, active and exciting.

Have you ever thought about hiring your own train for a special occasion? Over the years we have welcomed many groups that have decided rather than to book seats on a service train they would rather have their very own train for either a day or an evening. And with over 250 seats on our steam trains, the cost can work out at just a few pounds per person. A lot cheaper than hiring a room at a hotel and completely different!

As examples of events during the past few years, we have been pleased to play host to wedding groups, golden wedding celebrations, club outings, brownie visits, family get togethers and a whole lot more. We have organised special fish and chip evenings, wine and cheese events, and wine tastings etc. And this year because we have a split line, we can offer not only our traditional steam train evening charter from Winchcombe and Cheltenham Race Course, but also a smaller charter on our diesel rail car (DMU) from Toddington. So how about hiring this for a smaller gathering or social outing. And again, the hire can be for part of the day, the whole day or the evening. You decide!

If you would like to know more please e mail us at and we will do what we can to help you.

For Ticket Only events then tickets can be purchased beforehand but must be done at Least 10 days before the event.

Our Santa Specials need to be booked in advance and we take bookings from August onwards and Steam trains are usually fully booked by end of September if not before).

Also smoking is allowed in the open air but NOT within the Station Building or platforms.

Wheelchair visitors need to check in advance if we have capacity on that day because have a limited number of spaces on each on each train.

All visitors with disabilities are strongly recommended to have a helper with them (who travels free) because railways are a dangerous environment.
