All Aboard the Party Express!


Does your little one love Thomas the Tank Engine, Percy & Co? Are you looking for a fun alternative to Soft Play and Community Centre?

Kids love trains and there is nothing quite as exciting as a Train Party! So put on your cap, blow the whistle and let the little engineers have a fantastic day at East Lancashire Railway.

Children’s birthday parties at the East Lancashire Railway are an excellent all-year round alternative to outdoor spaces and back gardens.  You can tailor the train themed birthday programme to suit your little conductors’ needs.

Pick and mix your party experience from our range of options:

And of course it wouldn’t be a train party without a ride on a train! Head to Ramsbottom and visit Nuttall Park or the Chocolate Cafe, or journey all the way up to Rawtenstall for the full steam train experience. Remember under 5′s travel free so bring some friends (maximum 4 children per adult)!

Bury – Ramsbottom or Heywood Return:
