Special Events

At Amerton Railway we pride ourselves in our engaging, educational and fun special events that are suitable for all the family. Why not join us at one of our events this year and see what it’s all about?

Our family-friendly events are planned to allow everybody to enjoy our heritage without spending too much or travelling too far from the midlands. Our volunteers are excited to show you what we have achieved and these events are simply the best way to experience their efforts! 

We are able to accommodate groups, societies, companies and clubs at our railway for behind the scenes access and hands-on experience. Please see our Contact Us page for more information on getting in touch.
