Childrens Parties

Looking for something different for that special birthday or celebration? At the South Downs Light Railway we have the answer!

You and your party guests can have exclusive use of a steam (or diesel) hauled train for up to an hour. The birthday boy or girl will have their name on a special engine headboard.

The pary train runs after our normal operations on a Saturday, starting at 3:45pm. You are more than welcome to bring your own picnic/party food and make use of our picnic area, whilst watching the trains go by.

You may also hire the train for any celebration for any age, for example, a family get together or an adult’s special birthday.

If you would like to arrange a party or to find out more about what we can offer please ring Anne Jackson on 01403 273452 or 07518 753784 or email
