Summer Thursdays KIDS 1

Throughout the summer school holidays our popular Kids-for-a-Quid scheme is once again in operation. On certain dates we've got crafts for kids happening on the trains to further enhance you and your children's experience of the trip - please see more at Sue the Boxcrazy lady!

From 22 July until 2 September 2018 inclusive on every Thursday and each Sunday - up to two children (5-15 yrs) go for just £1 each when accompanied by any fare-paying Adult (16-59 yrs), Senior (60+ yrs), or Adult National Railcard holder.

See the foothills of the Chilterns in their summer glory: you might spot some of our local wildlife such as deer, and it is rather rare not to see the Red Kites whirling overhead.

Our volunteers will be making their way through the train with an at-seat service of tea, coffee and light refreshments.

Why not make several trips along the line - your travel tickets are valid all day long...
