Easter Fun

April 14, 2017 @ 8:00 am - April 17, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Treat yourself to a relaxing day out over the Easter break and enjoy the spectacle of some of the Island’s blossoming Spring-time countryside from the comfort of your seat on one of our steam trains!
There’s plenty to keep the youngsters occupied including popular Island children’s entertainer Greg Chapman who will amuse and occupy the kids with his stories, juggling and other antics.  Also, there’s colouring, crafts and an Easter Treasure Hunt to find the ‘Golden Duck’.
For the crafty youngsters, we’re asking children to come in their Easter bonnets and join in our Easter Bonnet Parade each day at 1:15pm (children need to make bonnets in advance).
To complete your day our friends from Haven Falconry will be presenting flying displays plus there’s a full menu of meals and light bites in our Refreshment Rooms.  And, lastly, don’t forget to explore our Train Story Discovery Centre!
Admission to our new Train Story Discovery Centre is included in the Steam Train Fare.
