Educational Visits Academic Year 2023-24

Following many years of successful school trips we are again offering day trips on heritage trains for school groups.

These are available on the following dates:

Each day involves two train trips (am and pm) and the chance to look around Ongar and North Weald stations. This includes the signal boxes and station buildings.

The day is £8 per pupil (£12 for the steam hauled service). We offer one free adult ticket for every 6 pupils. Additional adults will be charged £8 (£12 for the steam hauled service) each.

Gift Bags or a visit to the gift shop can be arranged via the Educational Visits Manager when you make your booking.

If you are using Public Transport (Central Line tube) to get to Epping station we can pick you up from there using our vintage buses. This is an additional £2 per pupil.

To book your school on to one of these days please contact- our Educational Visits Manager, Fiona Imrie (MA and BA Hons with QTS) by email:

Any request and bookings are subject to standard terms and conditions as detailed below.
