Choo Choose Whitehead Railway Museum for the perfect St. Patrick's Weekend.

For a day out with a difference this St Patrick’s weekend, why not make tracks to the award-winning Whitehead Railway Museum?

Take a short spin on one of our steam locomotives, experiencing the smell and sounds of one of our magnificent steam trains. Train rides will be running every 15 minutes from 12:00 – 16:00, on Saturday 16th March 2019, priced at £2.00 for children and £2.50 for adults.

Your trip is not complete without a visit to the charming Edwardian Tea Room. It’s the perfect spot to refuel with family and friends, serving homemade lunches, Saturday brunch and baked treats fresh each day from French Village Bakery.

If you want to get to know even more about railway history and delve deeper into the world of locos, a guided tour is a great option for all the family. Our five fascinating galleries are brought to life by video and interactive displays. Our children’s play area enables our younger visitors to fire their imaginations by dressing up in Edwardian-style clothes. They can make believe they are train drivers and passengers!

Located on the Causeway Coastal Route just 15 miles from Belfast, the Museum is the place to go if you want to rub shoulders with the giants of steam, step on board vintage carriages and learn lots of fun facts from our fantastic tour guides.

The Museum is open Thursday to Saturday from 10:00 to 16:00. Special St Patrick’s weekend steam train rides are Saturday 16th March, 12:00 to 16:00. Guided tours are available at 11:00, 13:00, 14:30, lasting approximately an hour. The free-to-enter Tea Room opens from 10:15 until 15:45.

Educational, group bookings and children’s parties are welcomed. Please email gm@steamtrainsireland.com for details. You can find out more on our website at www.steamtrainsireland.com.
