Take a magical steam train ride through the woods

Where: Perrygrove Railway, Perrygrove Farm, Perrygrove Road, Coleford, Gloucestershire GL16 8QB

When: Various dates and times in December

Experience a magical steam train journey in the dark through illuminated woods on a Twilight Trains ride with Perrygrove Railway.

Watch the arrival of the train at Perrygrove Station then take your pre-booked seats aboard the Twilight Express. Journey past the frozen lake and keep a good watch for Father Christmas on his rounds.

On arrival at the end station, enjoy a complimentary hot chocolate before setting off on the return journey. The train stops on the way back to check in with Father Christmas who will hand out a token gift to all the children.

Your ticket only lasts for one journey. The whole experience lasts just over an hour.

See the Perrygrove website for Twilight Trains dates and times, but be quick as many trains are already sold out!

Perrygrove is open every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday all year round and daily in local (Gloucestershire) school holidays. There is large free car park on site.

Perrygrove is based near Coleford on the edge of the Forest of Dean.
