Attraction Information

All aboard! Step into Whistlestop Valley in Huddersfield, the home of Yorkshire’s Great Little Steam Trains, where you can hop on and take a ride, plus loads more.

Any train enthusiasts, both big and little will have a fantastic time on a beautiful train ride through the glorious countryside in a spectacular hand-painted carriage. Plus, don’t miss the miniature ride-on railway for your chance to zoom around the local duck pond. Looking to blow off some steam? There’s not one, but two epic outdoor adventure play areas to discover, from sandpits to climbing frames, and of course, a mini wooden train, plus one playground is even train-themed!

Also, from 21st May ride along with Thomas and some of his friends! You can also meet Sir Topham Hatt and have some fun with Sodor's Station Sweepers, Rusty & Dusty. Join in with some colouring or drawing in the Imagination Station, have fun with face painting and watch balloon modelling! Join in the fun with a reenactment with Thomas, perhaps helping to fill him with water. Ride inside Daisy the DMU, and in Henrietta who is pulled along by Toby. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.

  • A fantastic steam train ride
