Responding to customer feedback, we have introduced an all-new clock-face timetable for 2018 that's designed to allow both more time to explore and take part in the activities at Stonehenge Works station and to browse around the popular craft shop.

Red Wheel Award

Wheelchair Bookings

Wheelchair users pay the standard fare, with one carer travelling free. Space is limited, and advance booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. Book online, or contact us at traffic.mgr@lbngrs.org.uk. See our accessibility page for full details.


Looking for a present that's a little bit different? We now offer gift vouchers, which can be spent on tickets for use on our trains at a later date. Just right for the railway enthusiast in your life! Available from Page's Park station booking office, on operating days.

We also offer VIP Experience packages, which make an extra-special gift.

Using Gift Vouchers and Complimentary Tickets

Please note that gift vouchers and complimentary tickets cannot be redeemed online. They must be redeemed in person at the Page's Park booking office, either on the day you wish to travel or on an operating day in advance.

Gift Aid It

For customers who pay UK income or capital gains tax, and make a donation in respect of the train fare for themselves and their immediate family, that is at least 10% more than the normal price, the Gift Aid scheme operated by HM Revenue & Customs allows us to claim back 25% of the combined ticket price plus donation amount. The proceeds will support the work of our volunteers in maintaining and developing this unique railway.

Group Discount

During our main season (March to November), a 10% discount is automatically applied to groups of 4 or more paying passengers on timetabled trains. Special rates apply for charter trains outside the public timetable.

Fast-track booking is available for parties of up to 30 people, using our handy online service on this page. If the system will not allow you to book as many seats as you would like, it is probably because the train is already full. Try a different train.

Want to take more than one trip?

Tickets for a second or subsequent train ride on the same day are given a 50% reduction in lieu of a rover ticket. The 50% discount is only available when buying tickets at the booking office and is not available for online bookings. Discounted tickets may be bought together on arrival or subsequently on presentation of a full price ticket. They can be bought in advance at the booking office only. We regret that we cannot offer a telephone booking service.

Please note that free travel offers (e.g. 2-for-1) will not be accepted on certain special event days, nor on Christmas Santa Specials.
