Booking and fares

Tickets for normal services can be purchased at station booking offices. It is possible to book on line in advance and reservations are not required – other than for travel on dining trains, Santa Special services and for groups of over 20 passengers. We accept all major credit and debit cards, and cash. Tickets can also be purchased on board from our Ticket Inspectors

We would be grateful if you would consider making a small donation to help with the upkeep of the Nene Valley Railway 263617.


The Railway is pleased to welcome all dogs and their owners onto our trains, subject to their owners ensuring that their dogs do not cause a distraction to the operation of the train or inconvenience and difficulties to fellow passengers. In addition dogs are not allowed onto carriage seats. There is a small charge for dogs who also get their own ticket.                             

All on line tickets must be presented to the Wansford Booking office to be validated. Blue Peter Badge holders can visit the railway for free.

Nene Valley Railway is one of over 200 attractions around the UK that Blue Peter badge holders can get into for free.

To gain free entry, badge holders with a valid badge card must be accompanied by a full paying or concessionary adult. If a paying adult is accompanied by two children with badges and valid badge cards, free entry will be given for both children.

Before you visit any of the attractions, grab a grown-up and read the Blue Peter Terms and Conditions.
