Steam & Scream Special Halloween event on the GWSR

Saturday 31 October 2020


Join the ‘Spooky Special’ train at Broadway, Toddington or Cheltenham Race Course Station and get in the mood with a special Halloween puzzle booklet on the train. But hold on tight - you never know what might happen as you make your way through the haunted Greet Tunnel on the approach to Winchcombe from Cheltenham!

Winchcombe Station is the focus for this spooktastic event. Watch out for the ‘Wicked Witch of Winchcombe’ on the platform, and beware of the phantom train rushing through the station as you listen to a ghost story in the Haunted Waiting Room. You can also try your hand at finding the 16 pictures of ghosts hidden around the station.

Why not come dressed for the occasion.  Wear your scariest costume and you will have the chance to win a prize for the best Hallowe'en costume on each train.

Don’t forget to visit the Witches' Cavern for some free indoor Halloween craft activities. Make your own Halloween mask, hairy spiders and bat clips, or try the popular temporary tattoo stickers and make a spooky jigsaw. There will also be Halloween stencils and puzzles to keep you busy until it’s time for your next train journey.

Before you leave, why not try the Halloween themed snacks in the 1950s style Coffee Pot Café? There is very limited car parking at Winchcombe so our advice is not to try and instead enjoy travelling by train from one of the other stations.

Don't forget there is FREE PARKING at Cheltenham Racecourse and at Toddington. Normal fares and timetable apply to at this event and all attractions are FREE.
