    We’ll reserve seating for your group in one of our 1950s railway carriages. Trains depart at 11:00am, 12:30, 14:00 and 15:30 at weekends between April and October. (Special Event and Sunday lunch dining train days excluded). You’ll have your reserved seats for one round trip (50 minutes), during which time you will be able to enjoy your ride 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.

    You can either have food onboard or afterwards served in our cafe.
    We offer hot or cold birthday boxes or a hot food menu.
    Birthday Party Menu

    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.


    You’ll need to reserve your seats onboard the train of your choice to guarantee your seats.  Prices are £5.50 per child and £8.50 per adult. 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.

    Booking Form

    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, will be due seven days before the event and you can pay the balance by cash or card.

    To book or for more information contact the station office, 0117 932 5538 or email
