Miniature Steam Train Rides at Ashton Court: dates for your diary

Did you know that tucked away within the grounds of Ashton Court Estate there is a little railway offering miniature steam train rides?

Ashton Court Railway holds public running days throughout the year and children of all ages (and adults too!) will enjoy gentle rides on smart little miniature steam trains of green, red and blue!

What makes Ashton Court Railway extra special is that the drivers of the trains are all volunteers for the Bristol Society of Model and Experimental Engineers, rather than it being a commercial enterprise.

Ashton Court Railway holds regular public running days and tickets are 90p for one ride, 5 tickets for £4 or 10 tickets for £8.

This year Ashton Court Railway will be open on the following dates from 12-5pm:

  • Sunday 22nd August
  • Sunday 5th, 26th & Mon 27th August
  • Sunday 9th (Diesel & Electric Gala) & Sunday 23rd September
  • Sunday 7th & 14th October
  • Sunday 2nd December (Santa Special)

If the weather is adverse, the event will be cancelled/postponed. You can find Ashton Court via these directions.
