Childrens Birthday Parties

A Special day with a difference for your Birthday Boy or Girl!

Birthday Parties can be fun, but at the Churnet Valley Railway we can offer that something extra for you and your guests with a train ride through Staffordshire's Little Switzerland. Every Birthday Boy and Girl will get the chance to visit the footplate of the day's service locomotive, where they will meet the Driver and Fireman. Our exclusive "Moorlander" Dining coach can also be made available too for those wanting to add something extra to an already special day (additional charges apply). 

So Mum and Dad, why not reserve your child’s birthday party seats today? You can bring your own cake, party food, entertainer and decorations if you wish, and enjoy a party with a difference along the Churnet Valley Railway.

Trains depart from either Cheddleton or Froghall Station, and we can cater the day to suit your needs.

Contact us for further information here, and find out what we can do for you.
