Home » What's On

29th - 30th October 2016

We will be running our Standard Travel Service 2 Timetable, click here for details.

Watch the Watercress Line transform in to a place of magic and mischief on Halloween!


Take unlimited rides on the Wizard Express steam train and walk in Harry Potter's footsteps over the famous railway footbridge where he received his Hogwarts Express ticket in the film and take a selfie! 

Come dressed as a witch, wizard or Halloween spook and find out about all things magical! Look up high and watch an owl display or even hold one on your arm*, be brave and touch some hairy, scary, creepy crawlies, marvel at a haunting magic show, make and fly on a witches broomstick* and get your face painted into something scary!*

* Additional fees apply. Facepainting over 2yrs on hand or arm, 3+ years on face.
