History & Nature Rides KIDS £1 – Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway, Station Approach, Station Road, Chinnor, Oxfordshire, OX39 4ER, Saturday 26 May 2018, 10:00am – 4:30pm

KIDS £1 with any accompanied by a fare-paying adult on our History & Nature ride, A unique opportunity to see, listen and learn something about the history of the line and the local area it traverses and also see some of our Chilterns area flora and fauna. The trip in our vintage diesel bubblecar includes an informative but light-hearted commentary from our railway volunteers as we gently wend our way along the foothills of the Chilterns.

In addition to an overview of our local history and the line and some of the people who worked on it; when we see something of interest to you, then we’ll simply ask our driver to stop so we can take a better look: that’s not something you can normally do! What are those birds? What’s growing in that field? Was that really the site of a Roman Villa?

And all the while there are lovely views gradually opening out to Whiteleaf Cross and the Vale of Aylesbury in the distance – en route we can often see Red Kites and perhaps some local deer too.

Our vintage railcar trips are also suitable for families: up to two children can travel for just £1 EACH when accompanied by another fare-paying Adult/Senior.

There are 4 timetabled trains that you can choose from; these are 10.30, 12.00, 13.45 & 15.15. There is a large free car park, cafe and souvenir shop available at Chinnor station.
