HALLOWEEN GHOST TRAIN
Fundraising event to help us maintain and develop the gardens.
Our crew of ghoulish characters are returning to Exbury's steam railway this October half term. They will be haunting the train tracks and entertaining families with their slapstick comedy performances... with a few frights along the way of course!
Our ghost train and characters may be a little too scary for some children so parental discretion is advised before booking.
Departing from Exbury Central Station.
Trains will depart from the station at the following times:
The ghost train experience is approximately 30 minutes long and begins on the platform. Please arrive at Exbury Central Station around 15 minutes before your booked train is due to depart. This means you will need to arrive at the gardens much earlier, we suggest booking an arrival timeslot for the gardens at least 30 minutes prior to your booked train departure time.
Members - £5.40 (valid membership will be checked before booking and upon arrival)
Non-members - £6.00 (plus gardens admission)
