Steam Train Ride Through Dean Forest!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please note that the 15:40 departure will not run on Saturday 17th April out of respect for the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

Enjoy a relaxing journey along the Dean Forest Railway behind one of our steam locomotives. Looking for something a little extra? Add a takeaway cream tea or afternoon tea to your trip when placing your booking (and make them extra fancy with a 20cl bottle of prosecco!), available for pickup from Whistles Cafe before your train ride.

Please note that we have made changes to how we would usually run things – please check out our COVID-19 Statement for full information on what changes we’ve made to ensure we are fully compliant.

Your journey will last approximately 90 minutes, covering our nine mile round trip along our forest line. You will begin your journey at Norchard Station and travel south to Lydney Junction and north to Parkend before returning to Norchard (please note, on most days the train will head south first, but on certain days the train will head north first).

Don’t forget to visit our shop and museum as well, which are open all day.
