This October half term, join the Fun Cast Character Company's Masters & Mistresses of Wizarding Mayhem on The Wizard Express!

Junior witches & wizards-in-the-making are invited to step aboard our spectacular steam train express and enjoy spellbinding activities including a Wizarding Class.

What's happening on the day?

On the day of your visit, you will be welcome to arrive from 9.30am and stay with us until we close at 5pm.

The time you choose when booking is the time your TRAIN DEPARTS from Clayton West to transport you to Shelley Station; it is NOT your arrival time!  Don't be late for your steam train ride or the Masters of Mayhem may curse you!

As well as your return steam train ride (25 mins each way), All THIS is included in your ticket price:

At Clayton West Station:

  • A fantastical 25 minute Wizarding School (drop in, at intervals throughout the day)

  • All day access to the covered jumping pillow
  • Unlimited rides on The Clayton Flyer miniature railway

At Shelley Station:

  • Tram platform rides
  • Access to the outdoor playground
  • Wizarding art/craft activities
  • A mini treasure hunt & the opportunity to gather clues from the Shelley Wizards! 

The event will take place daily from Monday 24 October to Friday 28 October 2022 and fancy dress is encouraged.

Visitors will book onto a specific train departure time, with trains departing every 40 minutes from 10am until the last service at 2.40pm.

Visitors can spend as long as they like at Shelley Station before choosing a return train ride later in the day.  Trains will be returning from Shelley every 40 minutes from 10.40am until the final departure at 4pm.
