Families can embark on a fairy tale adventure at Audley End Miniature Railway this half term.

From Saturday, May 25 to Sunday, June 2, visitors can go on a train ride through the forest, encountering displays from beloved fairy tales along the way.

Following the train ride, children can unleash their creativity by crafting a nature crown with materials sourced from the forest such as leaves, twigs and grass, as well as crafting their own wand.

Visitors can explore the Fairy and Elf Walk, which winds through the enchanted woods where children can spot tiny fairies living in harmony with nature.

Children can let off steam in the adventure playground and enjoy the popular 'bubble time'.

The Woodland Café will be offering locally-sourced and homemade food throughout the day.

Advance booking is required at www.audley-end-railway.co.uk.


Anyone wearing fairy tale-themed fancy dress on the day will receive a free activity book.

Audley End Miniature Railway owner Amanda Murray said: "We’re proud to be a location for families to spend time together, playing, exploring and make memories which we hope will last a lifetime.

"As we celebrate our 60th year this year, come and join in our special magic and wonderment."
