Show Data
1940s Weekend

Join us as we turn back the clock to the 1940s.  Enjoy vintage military vehicles, Home Front displays and wartime entertainment.  Plus our steam train rides throughout the day.


You’ll need to reserve your seats on a specific train and time. We’re still planning on seating family groups of bubbles in separate compartments or tables away from other passengers to help keep everyone safe. Once onboard you’ll enjoy a 50 minute ride on one of our steam-hauled trains.


There will be hand sanitiser available when you arrive as well as onboard the train, and our volunteers will be cleaning the train between journeys too (we’ve increased the gap between train times to help us achieve this safely).


If you don’t want to ride on the train you can just purchase a timed site admission ticket although these are limited. Please Click Here to access these admissions.


Please note; Car parking for this special weekend will be in Keynsham opposite the Lock Keeper pub. There’ll be a vintage bus Park & Ride service to and from Bitton Station departing regularly throughout the day. Special thanks to Taylor Wimpey for giving us permission to use this car park.

  • Concession priced tickets are valid for Over 60s and students only.
  • To keep our customers safe, each family group will be seated in separate compartments. Please select a carriage and then click on an available compartment. Choose your first seat and you'll then notice that all the remaining seats in that compartment become highlighted, so that no one else can book them. Then, just choose the different tickets you need for each of your group from the drop down lists.
