    GIVE YOUR CHILD A BIRTHDAY PARTY TO REMEMBER AT THE AVON VALLEY RAILWAY

    We’ll reserve seating for your group for up to 16, 32 or 64 people in one of our 1950s railway carriages. Trains depart at either 11.00am or 2.45pm and are available most running days between April and October. (Special Event and Sunday lunch dining train days excluded). Each party lasts for just over two hours, during which time you will be able to enjoy two return trips on our steam or heritage diesel hauled trains.

    You’ll first head north to Oldland Common then south into the Avon Valley to our station at Avon Riverside where you can watch the engine run around the train. Finally you’ll return to Bitton.

    Whilst onboard you’ll enjoy your birthday food from our selection available. This includes hot or cold birthday boxes with filled rolls, burgers, sausage and chips or jacket potatoes. You’re welcome to decorate the carriage with balloons and banners. You’re also free to organise any activities or party games during your trip.

    PRICES AND BOOKING

    Prices are £5.50 per child and £7.50 per adult, with the first two adults travelling free. A non-refundable deposit of £50 is required to secure your booking. We restrict birthday parties to two per day so please contact the railway station on 0117 932 5538 between 10am and 4pm to ensure your preferred date and time is available, before completing your booking form.

    ONBOARD CATERING

    To help your party run smoothly we’ll cater for your group, saving you lots of time and effort. We offer a selection of hot and cold food from our special birthday party menu:

    Birthday box £4.25 each
    Includes a small filled roll, cuplet drink, piece of fruit, chocolate bar, crayons and small book

    Hot Food £4.25 each
    Burger in a bun served with chips
    or
    Sausage and chips
    or
    Jacket potato with beans, cheese and salad

    All hot meals are served with a cuplet drink and ice lolly.
    Vegetarian options also available.

    We’ll need to know your final menu choices at least seven days before the party so we’ll be in touch closer to the date. At this time we’d also be grateful if you could advise us about any special dietary requirements. You are welcome to bring a celebration cake to enjoy at the end of the meal but, unfortunately, due to Food Safety regulations, we are unable to permit any other food.

    The final payment for the food, together with the balance of the cost of the train fares, will be collected before the start of the party on the day of the party itself. You can pay the balance by cash or card.

    For more information contact the station office and we’ll reserve the seats for you.
