Your journey will last approximately 10 minutes each direction. You can alight at Inch Abbey Station to walk to the Abbey, or enjoy the buffet carriage – or stay on board and have as many return journeys as you like.

There’s plenty to see and do around the railway during your visit, make sure you see everything! You can stay at the railway as long as you like up to the end of the day.

During your visit, children should look out for the hidden bunnies with letters, and collect them on their sheet to spell out the magic words. Take these to the Easter Bunny in our carriage gallery to claim your Easter Egg.

More details can be found on our Easter Eggspress webpage here.
