'Sir Keith Park' Steam Weekend!

Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th October

Join us at the Spa Valley Railway for a ride behind Battle of Britain Class Bulleid Pacific No. 34053 'Sir Keith Park'!
On Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th October, instead of our usual Beer & Cider Festival (which we are afraid to say is cancelled due to COVID) you can take a steam train ride with 'Sir Keith Park'. The Bulleid Pacific will be hauling trains in both directions and we've a variety of dining train options for you to enjoy throughout the day if you would like to book on one of these instead!
