We recently went to Kirklees Light Railway for their Day Out With Thomas 🚂

This place has been on our list for a while. It is a great day out for train fans. The opening ceremony saw The Fat Controller come into the station and unveil the trains. First ride of the day is on Thomas then after that the rides are on the other engines.

There’s lots to do. We enjoyed face-painting, donkey rides, a ride on train, a great playground, all included in your ticket price.

You book on a specific time train and it takes you on a 25 minute train ride to another station. Here there was another playground, sandpit, tearoom, garden games, bouncy castle and story time sessions. They had a BBQ plus plenty of space for a picnic 🧺

It took us just under an hour from Harrogate and was train and Thomas heaven.

They run these events several times a year so check out their page for the next dates.
