Group Bookings

School & Group Bookings

Saltburn Miniature Railway Limited provides a special Charter Service for Schools and Groups outside our normal scheduled weekend and school holiday opening hours. Bookings can be made from Easter until the end of September, between the hours of 9am to 5pm.

The rates for this service reflect the number of passengers in the charter group.

You can expect an enjoyable journey as it meanders through the Valley Gardens and you have the choice of starting at Cat Nab or Forest Halt stations. 

The Victorian Tearooms situated in the Valley Gardens offer discounts for Schools and Group bookings to provide packed lunches and especially for Schools they offer discounted Ice Creams! Please ring them direct on 01287 626792 for further information.

School parties and playgroups must provide the recommended staff to pupil ratio whilst on the train. Groups with passengers who have limited mobility should contact or visit our operation to discuss any special needs. There are a limited amount of specially adapted compartments that can carry wheelchairs. 

No charge will be levied if the booking is cancelled 48 hours prior to the charter but
any cancellation within 24 hours may be invoiced for payment depending on the circumstances.
 

We reserve the right to cancel a charter if there is heavy rain or has been heavy rain prior to the scheduled run as this affects the track conditions and the decision by our train crew is final.

There will be no charge in this instance and we will be happy to arrange an alternative day and time if you wish.

When can I make a booking ?

School bookings can be made for Mondays through to Fridays during April, May, June and July. Group bookings can be made for anyday from Easter to the end of September and all bookings are subject to volunteers availability.

As volunteers operate the railway we cannot always guarantee to be able to accommodate every specific request but SMR Ltd. will give its best endeavour to meet your requirements. If someone else has booked the same time that you require we will be happy to suggest an alternative to suit.
We will only guarantee a booking once our volunteers have comitted to your requested date and then we will be in a position to offer confirmation.
