Hallowsteam at Didcot Railway Centre

Didcot Railway Centre

This October half term, during the Halloween weekend, take a trip to Didcot Railway Centre for the spooky Hallowsteam event. Young visitors are invited to dress as ghouls, ghosts, witches, wizards, zombies, and skeletons as they climb aboard a working steam train for a visit to a spooky Victorian train station. They’ll even have the opportunity to step inside a ‘haunted’ cartridge.

There’ll be treats for every child and while the centre doesn’t have any real ghost trains, you’ll still have the chance to ride behind a diesel engine named ‘Phantom’. Pick a copy of the Halloween trail and explore the 21-acre open-air museum and discover some ghoulish goings on. All the centre’s other attractions will also be open, so be sure to take a look through the Engine Shed which remains largely unchanged since 1932. It will be a chance to explore the centre, learn about a range of locomotives, and have a family-friendly day out everyone will enjoy.
