Play area

Ignite your little ones’ imaginations and help them discover the world of railways through play and experimentation.

Our youngest visitors can explore, build, move, pretend and play with lots of interactive activities in our play area for under-5s. From building their own Stephenson’s Rocket to selling tickets in our little railway station and running their own toy railways, plenty of adventures await budding engineers and train drivers!

For your safety

The under-5s play area will be limited to a maximum of four adults and six children at any one time. Visitors using the area will need to clean the equipment after use and it area will be closed periodically throughout the day for deep cleaning.
