Princess Academy

This week a host of brave princesses and noble knights will be embarking on a quest to reclaim the magical gems and save Storybook Land from the vile villains! This interactive tale will see you and your family board a steam train alongside your favourite friends from film and fable and take part in a host of entertaining activities to complete the story.

The event includes:

  • One return trip from Bury to Rawtenstall hauled by a royally restored heritage steam train
  • A two-hour fairy-tale experience with the East Lancashire Railway’s most noble lords and ladies
  • Princess themed activities
  • Plenty of photo opportunities

Royal refreshments will be available to purchase from our café on Platform ¾ at Bury Bolton Street Station and from our on-train buffet.

The experience lasts approx. 2 - 3 hours and is recommended for families with children aged 5 years and over.

Tickets cost £13 per adult and £8.50 per child and must be booked in advance.
