August Bank Holiday Open Days at Millerbeck Light Railway

30 August @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

This event will be run differently to our regular normal Open Days
•Your timed ticket will admit your family for a one-hour or two-hour visit, with unlimited train rides, during your time slot.
•To control visitor numbers, all people must book a ticket (children’s tickets are valid up to 14 years old. Babies under 12 months don’t require a ticket).
•There will be different trains running continuously for you to enjoy, allowing you multiple rides during your visit.
•To maintain social distancing and reduce queuing, you will board the next available train.
•The number of visitors & their cars will be limited as parking will be strictly controlled, as will arrival & departure times for guests.
•After parking you will be directed straight to your first ride, with social distancing in place.
•Trains will depart the usual, but isolated, end of the Platform & will unload at the end of your ride at the House platform only. You will then return to the station for additional rides, via a pedestrian area.
•Sanitizing stations will be available.
•Due to time limitations & social distancing, the usual picnic area will be available to view the engines and enjoy a drink or an ice-cream, but your own picnicking will not be permitted. You will want to spend your time riding anyway!
•Hot & cold drinks, cakes & ice cream will be available as usual, but we will only be accepting contactless card payments as you might expect. No cash payments.
