Halloween ghost train - sold out

Fundraising event to help us maintain and develop the gardens

Our crew of ghoulish characters are returning to Exbury’s steam railway this October half term. They will be haunting the train tracks and entertaining families with their slapstick comedy performances... with a few frights along the way of course!

Our ghost train and characters may be a little too scary for some children so parental discretion is advised before booking.

Availability

Updated every morning at 9am. Compartments can comprise of 2 - 6 persons (including children and dogs). Actual availability may vary, please call 02380 891203 to check.

    ‘What could be better on a trip down to the New Forest than a walk in a beautiful garden, a ride on a steam train (which my grandson adored!) and a chance to see the Beaulieu river close up? A memorable day out and a gem of a place’
