History and Nature Rides and Kids £1 at Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway
Event Times: 10.00 - 16.30 Admission: Adult £12.00, Senior £10.00, Child £1.00
Kids £1 with any accompanied by a fare-paying adult on our History and Nature ride, you will ride on our vintage diesel bubblecar and during the hour long trip you will receive informative but light-hearted commentary from our railway volunteers about the history of the line and the local area it traverses and to also see some of our area’s flora and fauna as we gently wend our way along the foothills of the Chilterns. In addition to an overview of our local history and the line and some of the people who worked on it; when we see something of interest to you, then we'll simply ask our driver to stop so we can take a better look: that's not something you can normally do! What are those birds? What's growing in that field? Was that really the site of a Roman Villa? And all the while there are lovely views gradually opening out to Whiteleaf Cross and the Vale of Aylesbury in the distance - en route we can often see Red Kites and perhaps some local deer too.
There are 4 timetabled trains that you can choose from; these are 10.30, 12.00, 13.45 and 15.15. There is a large free car park, cafe and souvenir shop available at Chinnor station. For more information about the railway and other activities please see our website. We very much look forward to seeing you on our History and Nature Rides and thank you for your support.
