Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Events

14 November 2021 - 1 January 2022

Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Specials are nostalgic fun for all the family! Take a trip back in time to the days of railway elegance. Closed in 1935 – this is the first phase in rebuilding one of the world’s most famous and picturesque narrow gauge railways; the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple Railway. A one mile section has now been reopened allowing visitors to travel by train along the original ‘L&B Railway’ route above the Heddon Valley near Parracombe in South West England’s Exmoor National Park

Remembrance Sunday  – 14th November

When the railway honours the sacrifices of the fallen with a Service of Remembrance.

The Service of Remembrance commences at 10.50am with a two-minute silence at 11am.

After the service, trains will commence running.

Given it is a Special event, trains will run as required rather than to a fixed timetable.

Light catering will also be available including hot drinks.

Christmas Trains & Mince Pie Specials

As our Christmas Specials were so popular last year, we have decided to operate our trains the same way over the Christmas period.

All passengers will be offered a free mince pie and a hot drink.

The railway will be appropriately decorated for the season.

Our fares and terms are as per the published timetable.

No need to book in advance. Just turn up and we will accommodate you on our heritage steam hauled trains.

Our Victorian Carriages contain 23 separate compartments (including four 1st Class), one for each family group
