The Princess Adventure

This event has no upcoming dates

    Be a Part of Our World

    Be our guest and let it go, dig a little deeper and introduce your little princesses and knights to a whole new world of railway enchantment.

    It’s all aboard the Fairytale Express as your favourite characters join forces with the ELR for a mission to find the magical gems of Storybook Land before the evil villains find them and end everyone’s happy endings.

    Sing along with our heroes as they use magic and mayhem to win the day, but they’ll only be able to do it with your help! Join our cast as they take you on a fantastical family day out that travels the length and breadth of the East Lancashire Railway.
