Groups and Functions

What We Can Offer

Chasewater Railway can provide a great value opportunity for you to arrange your special event in unusual surroundings.  We can cater for up to 30 people when open to the public or 55 for private hire functions however without the catering option we can accommodate up to 150 on a private train hire.

Whether you are planning a birthday party or other special event, or you are thinking about something different for your school, nursery or playgroup, we may be able to provide a solution.

For the most cost-effective event, we can arrange reserved accommodation on our regular public trains. However, we can also arrange private charter trains on other days, subject to availability. Prices for a party of 30 including train ride, and a cold buffet (full food details please email) start from as little as £9.50 per head. We can cater for certain special dietary needs if given prior notice. All bookings need to be confirmed at least 14 days prior to the event with a 50% non refundable deposit payable and then the full balance 3 days before.

Please Note: we are unable to offer party bookings or reservations between October until March this includes during our Santa trains in December, due to high demand for seats on these very popular trains.

On Our Regular Public Trains

You can check our exact public operating dates, train times, etc, on the timetables page.

Normally, a round trip takes about 45mins to 1 hour, but many parties like to take more than one journey. This is no problem, but you should check the timetable for the day you intend to travel – our standard services normally run every hour and a quarter,

We can currently book either Saturday’s or Thursday’s during school holidays, note we are unable to take party bookings on Sunday’s or during special events.

Charter Trains

We can provide trains on non-scheduled travel days specifically for your needs subject to volunteer availability. Whether for a party or a corporate event. We have fiber broadband available on request, so we can in most cases help organise something to meet your requirements. Typically a private train hire starts from £250 Diesel hauled or £450 for Steam Locomotive per day (up to 4 return trips) plus any catering requirements from £5 per head. Please email for a no obligation quote.

We look forward to seeing you at the Chasewater Railway!
