Spooks & Ghouls KIDS 1 & Crafts

There's a definite chill in the air in the lead up to Hallowe'en and they say the Steam-hauled Ghost Train of the old and eerie Chiltern foothills comes 'alive' in a very different and spooky way.

It all looks rather innocent, but don't be fooled... we have heard there may be Hitch-hiking Ghosts, perhaps a Haunted station and maybe even Ghastly Ghouls abroad - dare you 'dress for the occasion' and come along for a ride?

Summer Crafts

Looking for something to keep children amused on the train? Why not join the Boxcrazy Ladies, Sue and Barbara for some fun crafts while you enjoy the trip down the line?  The craft sessions run on the 11.00, 12.15 and 13.35 departures from Chinnor and the 11.35, 12.50 and 14.10 from Princes Risborough.

The cost of the craft session is an extra £4 per Child (payable to Sue on the day, cash or card) and there is a maximum of 20 people per craft session on any one journey.

A trolley service of drinks and light refreshments is available at your seat from 11.00 and children travel for just £1 and will receive a small treat.

If you are looking for something more to do whilst in Chinnor then see our guide 'Stroll Around Chinnor Village' which includes links to the Wee Bookshop and The Village Centre for food and drink, ditto Bar/Restaurant meals in local pubs, or say visit the Windmill (generally open first and third Sunday in the month) or the local Church, and the guide also lists other places that may be of interest.
