The miniature railway line at Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park will have steam and diesel hauling passenger services and miniature traction engines offering rides all weekend to guests giving you a chance to enjoy a fantastic ride around the Strawberry Line’s 5inch gauge.

Alongside these rides there will be a special photo opportunity sessions where you can have your photograph taken as a miniature railway driver. Don your driver’s hat and smile for the camera!

And why not have a go at driving a miniature engine yourself for just £5 with our unique ‘Driver for a Fiver’ offer (extra charge of £5 per person and age restrictions apply).

There will be free themed train engine crafts for children with a passion for railways and Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park’s day out offering ensuring the whole family have a great day.

Please note: Steam locomotive rides will begin around 1pm each day due to the requirements needed to haul passengers. One train ride is included in Adventurers’ Passes on entry, or buy online the day before to save £1 per person. Additional train rides are £2 per ride, per person.
