Group Bookings

Party of eight or more?
Book as a Group and get a substantial discount.

You can also hire your own train or the whole railway for your own event such as children's (husband's!) birthdays etc.

By Booking your Group Travel in advance, you can benefit from generous discounts on our standard prices. We are always happy to discuss your particular requirements and will always do our best to tailor our pricing to your needs.

We serve cream teas, sandwiches cakes and other similar light refreshments. We can provide more elaborate catering if required.

Our Station Shop provides an excellent opportunity to browse for books, gifts, or that valued reminder of time spent with us. Visitors can purchase from one of our range of exclusive L&B railway items, either as a present or souvenir.

Entry and parking is free with plenty of space on what is predominantly a level site.


Wheelchair users and helpers are very welcome on our trains and our Guards are always on hand and trained to provide assistance.

For more details please go to our Accessibility Page or download/read our Access Statement.

Our toilets are especially designed with wheelchair users in mind.
