Day Out with Thomas

23rd September 2017 - 24th September 2017


With so much to see and do it will make your Day Out With Thomas the ideal all day family activity and, once you have bought your ticket for this event, entrance to all attractions is free!

Ride not only with Thomas but also behind other steam and diesel engines, including Daisy, on the frequent trains between Cheltenham Race Course, Winchcombe and Toddington.  Gates open at 0900 and trains will run every 45 minutes throughout the day with the first train at 0930 from Toddington and 0945 from Cheltenham Racecourse.
Of course the Fat Controller will once again be over seeing proceedings and trying to make sure that Thomas doesn't get into any mischief!
