Welcome to Nene Valley Railway's Children's Birthday Parties

We have three party spaces available for hire: our David Ray Centre which is a classroom-style room situated in the corner of Wansford Car Park; a Marquee (8 m by 6 m, only available from 1st April to end of October) which is situated on Platform 2 at Wansford Station, and our Barnwell Building Waiting Room on Platform 2 at Wansford.

These party spaces are available to book from Wednesday through to Sunday each week from February through to the end of October (not available Halloween Weekend).

Party food can be purchased from our on-site Cafe.

We are unable to host any Birthday Parties during the months of November, December or January due to our Christmas Train Services.

To book a Party, please call a member of our team on 01780 784444 (phone lines are open 7 days a week from 10am to 3pm) or email us at adminassistant@nvr.org.uk
