The Pirate Adventure

This event has no upcoming dates


    Yo-Ho-Ho Me Hearties!

    Yo Ho Ho! A pirate’s life for you! Join Captain Kidd and his Crazy Crew as you set sail on board the pirate express to seek out the key to unlock the Captain’s Treasure Chest so the scurvy seafarers can get their booty.

    You’ll learn all the skills to be a perfect pirate, a fastidious freebooter and a peerless privateer. So swash your buckle and shiver your timbers as you climb aboard. Just make sure the captain’s parrot doesn’t escape or you may just have to walk the plank!

    What's Included?

    • One return trip from Bury to Rawtenstall hauled by one of our very own galleon's, a heritage steam train
    • A two hour buccaneering experience with some of East Lancashire's Scurviest Dogs
    • Pirate themed activities
    • Plenty of photo opportunities

    Grub (food) and grog (drink) will be available to purchase from our café on Platform 3/4 at Bury Bolton Street Station and from our on-train buffet.
