  • Railway and Transport Attractions icon Railway and Transport Attractions

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

The first official passengers, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, were carried on the 8th August 1854. The Royal guests were conveyed in a horse drawn tender. The railway continued in its mineral carrying capacity for the remainder of the 19th century.
On Easter Sunday there is the Easter Egg Special with a free mini egg for the children. Just before Christmas they run the annual Santa Special, each child receives a small Christmas present and adults enjoy a mince pie and glass of wine.
In addition to standard gauge railway, the Alderney Railway owns and operates a 71/4 inch miniature railway at Mannez Quarry extending to about a quarter of a mile. This little railway runs on most Sundays during July and August and usually for the Santa Special (subject to weather) and the Easter Egg special. It does vary though, so PLEASE make sure you check times in advance with them!
Alternative numbers for accurate directions are: +44 (0)1481 822980 or 822643. For running times call Sandy Keay on 823580.
