Enjoy some weekday fun with your Little Engineer(s) at one of our toddler/preschooler sessions!

The Young Engineers experience is a scaled down version of a day at the KLR with your mini-me in mind:

  • Return steam train ride to Cuckoo's Nest only (total journey time of 25 minutes) - can travel more than once if availability allows
  • Unlimited platform rides on Tram No.7
  • Unlimited rides on the Clayton Flyer miniature railway
  • Unlimited access to the playground at Clayton West
  • The shop will be open
  • The Buffer Stop Cafe will be open serving a reduced, cold menu, drinks & snacks (hot food will NOT be available)
  • Access to our outdoor picnic areas (please note your own food cannot be consumed inside the cafe)
  • Reduced capacities with strict hygiene, cleaning & social distancing measures in place

All this is available for just £3.95 per person for visitors aged one & above (babies under the age of 12 months go FREE).

So, you can spend a day out with us without spending a fortune.

The session time you choose is the time you should ARRIVE at Clayton West Station. Please do not arrive earlier!

Trains to Cuckoo's Nest will depart at quarter past & quarter to each hour from 10.15am until 2.45pm. Journeys & seats will be unallocated & you may travel as many times as you like throughout the day depending on socially distanced availability on each service. As such, if a service is full to capacity, you may have to wait to take the next service instead.  Seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
