Epping Ongar Railway is Essex's longest heritage railway and the closest to London, running from Ongar to North Weald and into Epping Forest. They run a fleet of former mainline steam and diesel locomotives which haul a range of period coaches between the beautifully restored period stations.

Take your seat in one of the period coaches and watch the train pass through picturesque countryside from Ongar to North Weald, from here you can catch the heritage rail shuttle which takes you through Epping Forest, where they regularly see deer and a wide range of wildlife. Spotters guides are in the Guide Book! The railway runs a heritage bus to Epping Underground station and Epping high street every day they are running, complete with an open platform on the back, and this is timed to neatly connect with the trains. Your great value ticket includes all three heritage transport experiences, with discounts available from our website.

Epping Ongar Railway offers you and your family the chance to step back in time to enjoy the romance of heritage travel, an inspiring day out for all ages, the chance to explore the beauty of this area and connects together a wide range of attractions in Epping Forest and its surroundings.

Lovely railway, clean, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Been twice would definitely recommend it, especially when they have special events like buses and trains. Kids loved it.
