The Railway is open to the public on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00am and the last train runs at approximately 3:45pm.  We are also open on most Bank and Public Holidays and some additional days during school holidays.  Exceptionally, due to bad weather, staff shortages or unplanned maintenance work, the Railway may have to close without warning. Therefore, to avoid disappointment, please call the number below after 10:00am on the day you intend to visit in order to check if the Railway is open.

Ticket prices are: £1.50  for children aged from 2 to 13 years of age; £2.00 for adults

and £1.50 for Senior Citizens (those aged 60+).  Children under 14 years of age MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Train rides exclusively for groups including birthday parties, school trips and coach parties can be pre-booked.

For more information call the Railway on 02392 413324 during opening hours.

Latest News:



It is understood that there will be a large number of people attending the Halloween events on the Stansted Estate on each of the nights indicated above. The expected numbers are more than can be accommodated on the Spooky Train Ride during the operating hours. It has therefore become necessary to limit the number of passengers on each of the nights. In order to achieve this the number of tickets will be limited. To avoid any problems associated with the Railway’s inability to operate on any given evening due to bad weather, tickets will only be issued on the individual evening if the weather conditions permit.

Tickets will be on sale from a booth in the Car Park outside the Railway from 4:30pm.

Once the number of allocated tickets have been sold, no more will be issued.

Tickets will cost £1.50 each for all ages.

Tickets may then be used at any time throughout the evening to avoid queuing or will give time for passengers to go away to other events on the site and return to the Railway later.

Trains will run from 5:30pm until 9:30 pm.

NOTE!   The last train will depart at 9:30 pm.
