TICKET TYPES


FOOD & DRINK

You won’t go home hungry after a day at our railway. After a ride on the train, head over to the play park with a picnic. Or, perhaps enjoy a good old bacon buttie, sandwiches or a slice of homemade cake at the Steaming Kettle Buffet situated in a stationary railway carriage.


BROWSE THE MUSEUM

The railway at Ludborough, which was part of the East Lincolnshire route running from Boston to Grimsby, is steeped in history. The collection of artefacts contributes to our understanding of the development of the railways in this region. There’s an array of cast iron notices, railway lamps, tickets, uniform buttons, advertising signs, name boards which used to be seen on station platforms and paper ephemera, all from an era that is now just a distant memory.


DISCOVER WHAT HAPPENS IN THE ENGINE SHED

While you are at Ludborough don’t forget to visit the engine shed, where we carry out the maintenance and restoration work on our locomotive fleet. We are proud to be one of the few heritage railways that allows visitors a look behind the scenes. The shed is open to the public on most running days when staff are in attendance. We also offer guided tours – please ask for more information when you visit.


TAKE HOME A SOUVENIR

Browse the well-stocked gift shop and choose from a selection of merchandise and toys to take home a souvenir of your visit.
