The Princess Adventure

Dates for this event

  • 27th July 2017,

Princesses for a day

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.

What's Included?

  • One return trip from Bury to Rawtenstall hauled by our own version of Cinderella's Horse & Carriage, a heritage steam train
  • An enchanting two hour experience with some of your favourite fairytale characters
  • Magical activities along the line
  • Plenty of photo opportunities

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