A childhood dream, special retirement gift or a very special present. Our Gift Vouchers offer the ideal solution to those wishing to purchase a present but don't want to commit to a date.

Our vouchers are available for all the courses we offer and come with a 12 month validity, so there is plenty of time for the recipient to book on one of our many courses. Our gift vouchers come presented in a special Footplate Gift Card with all the information you will need to know. 

We offer three types of experiences:

The Steam Footplate Experience

The Diesel Footplate Experience

The Steam Footplate Ride

All vouchers can be purchased online via the link on the right.

We also advise that anyone wishing to purchase a Footplate Experience read our Terms & Conditions here. The courses can be labour intensive (with exception of the Footplate Ride) so we suggest that you make sure prior to booking that the recipient will be able to enjoy the experience to the full. 

If you have any queries about any experience you can call our office between 10am and 4pm 7 days a week on 0161 764 7790 where our customer service team will be able to help you further.
