Group Bookings

School Charter Bookings and groups e.g. parties and weddings.

Saltburn Miniature Railway Limited provides a special Charter Service for Schools and Groups outside our normal scheduled weekend and school holiday opening hours. We try to limit these to Tuesdays,Wednesdays and Thursdays, but if your requirement is outside of these days then please contact us. 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 party.

You can expect an enjoyable journey as the train meanders through the Valley Gardens and you have the choice of starting at Cat Nab (seafront) or Forest Halt (woods) stations. Please specify your pick up point when making the booking plus any special needs and instructions on the booking form.

The Victorian Tearooms situated in the Valley Gardens offer packed lunches and discounted ice creams especially for Schools. Please ring them direct on 01287 626792 for further information.


All aboard and off we go.

School parties and playgroups must provide the recommended staff to pupil ratio whilst on the train. Schools or Groups with passengers who have limited mobility should inform us via the section special needs and instructions contained in the booking form to make any further arrangements as required. We have two modified and adapted compartments on the train 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 or has been heavy rain prior to the scheduled run as this affects the track conditions. 

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