Haworth Haddock

The Haworth Haddock will back in 2019 with the first ‘Haddock’ of the year on 27th April. Don’t delay as seats fill up very fast and with Christmas coming up this would make a perfect gift for someone in your life.

These special evening trains depart Oxenhope at 7:15pm for two leisurely return journeys along the branch with a pause at one of our superbly restored stations while the food is served.

This is what some of our guests thought of their trip on the ‘Haworth Haddock’ on Tripadvisor.

“There were 24 of us that did the Haworth Haddock for my mums 70th birthday. We were able to take balloons on the train and decorate the carriage up …. Didn’t really know what to expect when we first booked this but I can honestly say that I would definitely do this again. We had an amazing evening.”

“It was a lovely nostalgic trip on a steam train and we had great fish and chips and live entertainment from the Pretend Beetles at the station. The whole evening was superb and I would thoroughly recommend it.”

Beer, Wines & Spirits

The Haworth Haddock trains are fully licensed and our award winning Real-Ale Buffet Cars will be part your the Haworth Haddock train serving beer, wines and spirits as well as soft drinks and teas and coffee. The bars are open for the duration of your evening both during the journey and the stop-overs at Keighley.

PLEASE NOTE: The Haworth Haddock is fully licensed for the sale of alcoholic drinks with a good selection of beers, wines and sprits available. Accordingly passengers on the Haworth Haddock are NOT permitted to bring their own alcoholic beverages onto the train or onto Oxenhope and Keighley platforms.

Your Journey

“…a most enjoyable evening – a good time was had by all…”

Your evening will start at Oxenhope Station where you will be greeted by one of our friendly volunteer stewards upon arrival. The “Haworth Haddock” will normally be in the platform by 7pm, to give you plenty of chance to visit the bars before the rush starts.

Shortly after leaving Oxenhope, our stewards will bring round fresh teacakes and condiments before we arrive at Keighley when Fish & Chips will be served at your seat, piping hot and delicious!

The train will then make a leisurely journey to Oxenhope, returning to Keighley so you can stretch your legs and have a boogie to some toe-tapping classics, played by one of our excellent bands: make the most of the evening!

At the end of the evening, the train will arrive back at Oxenhope around 23.15.

Entertainment

Every “Haworth Haddock” will lay over at Keighley Station, where there will be a band playing on the platform. The on-train bars will be open throughout, so you can either dance the night away on the platform, or simply relax and enjoy a drink in the comfort of our coaches.

During the stop-over at Keighley on your second round trip from Oxenhope, a local band will be entertain you on the platform. Those who have been before will confirm that this unusual experience is one not to be missed. The bands for each evening will be publicised on the website in due course.
