Buckinghamshire Railway Centre

Buckinghamshire Railway Centre: A fun day out for all the family!
Thomas will be back on 3rd & 4th September - you can pre-book your tickets here by clicking on Special Events above.

In the meantime, the Summer Holidays are here!
During the school holidays we will be offering Steam Train rides every Wednesday as well as Sundays! (Until - and including - Wednesday 31st August).

Our regular Steaming Days are every Sunday from March to October... (we are open other days too, see below for more information!)

We are open from 10.30am - 5pm (last admission at 4pm)

On our Steaming Days you get unlimited free steam train rides on our 1/3 mile length of track! There are lots of other engines, coaches and carriages on display to see and learn about. Take a trip (£1 per person age 2+) on our 1km long, ride-on miniature steam railway (a delight for the children - but the adults love it too!) and visit our exhibition hall. We also have a beautiful glass-roofed visitor centre with more to see, including meticulously restored engines and carriages from times past. We also have a shop and cafe, a big on-site car park, four lots of toilets around the site, two footbridges (one with disabled access) and plenty of picnic areas... Come and spend the day with us!

Scroll down to find out more about when we are open, and read about our different types of Open Day...

Steaming Days:
These are our normal, working open days - every Sunday until the end of October, and Wednesdays during the school holidays (July 13th-August 31st). On a Steaming Day, we offer unlimited free steam train rides, and everything around the site will be open - the ride-on miniature steam trains, the exhibition hall, our work sheds are usually open so you can see work in progress on engines being restored. Also, our shop will be open and the cafe will be serving hot meals, sandwiches, cake and drinks.

Special Events: 
This is usually a Steam Gala or rally, when we might have, for example, visiting locomotives, traction engines or Thomas the Tank Engine. See 'Special Events' or 'Calendar' on the top options bar to see what is coming up later on this season. Special Events are held on Saturdays & Sundays, or Sundays & Bank Holiday Mondays. Everything is open and running, as on our Steaming Days (above), and on our busier days, we have another engine running offering brake van rides on the other side of the track.

Static Days:
On a Static Day, the site is open but no trains/rides will be running - prices are much reduced for these days. Static Days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the season (and Wednesdays too, but not in the school holidays when Wednesdays are Steaming Days). There is still so much to see; you can look around all the locomotives, the exhibition hall, our glass-roofed visitor centre with steam engines on display, including a Royal Victorian dining coach. The shop is open, but our cafe is only open for self-serve drinks (hot and cold) and snacks on these days, but you are welcome to bring a picnic and use our cafe tables!

To find out what is on on a particular day, click on 'Calendar' on the top options bar, and click on that day. If you have any trouble, please call us on 01296 655720, the office is open 9am-4pm Monday-Friday, or email Thank you!

We have lots of fabulous Special Events coming up! Click on 'Special Events' on the top options bar for more information and to book tickets.
