COVID UPDATE – 26 NOVEMBER 2020
Statement regarding the Mulled Wine Specials at the KWVR.
With the news today that the Worth Valley will be in Tier 3, we have been working closely with Bradford Council to check that – subject to release of the final government legislation – our Mulled Wine Special trains will proceed as planned without infringing the new Covid regulations.
As a result, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you on board for a journey full of Christmas good cheer.
We appreciate that you may still have further questions, and we will issue an “FAQ” shortly. We would be very grateful if you could avoid calling the office so that we can focus on the final festive Covid-secure preparations. If you do need to contact us, please email us in the first instance, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you already have a reservation, or email@example.com for all other enquiries.
We will issue a further statement regarding services between Christmas and New Year and beyond very shortly.
As Christmas approaches, it’s time to enjoy a heart-warming mulled wine and mince-pie onboard the Mulled Wine Special.
Set a new Christmas tradition this year with a journey on one of our brand new specials running on Friday 11th December. Slow down and take a moment to enjoy a break from the hustle and bustle that December brings as you steam through the valley from Oxenhope to Keighley and back.
The train will slow down as we pass historic stations and through a mesmerising tunnel of lights along the way. We’ll take a break at Keighley Station where you can enjoy festive music and will be served mulled wine and a mince pie in the comfort of your own private compartment.
Don’t forget to wrap up warm (Christmas jumper’s aren’t compulsory but make great festive photos – !).
Your ticket includes:
- Round trip from Oxenhope.
- Reserved decorated private compartment.
- Mulled Wine and a home made Mince pie.

Health & Safety
We‘ve taken special precautions to make sure your visit to the Railway is as safe as possible.
How we will ensure that the Railway’s a safe place to visit?
- We’ve implemented enhanced cleaning regimes in line with government guidance. Each compartment will be fully cleaned before every journey, and hand sanitiser will be available at various locations.
- We’re proud to have been awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry charter mark. This shows that we’ve worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines. It means you can be sure we have processes in place to maintain cleanliness and safety.
How will we enforce social distancing?
The safety of our passengers and staff is our main priority. On arrival at Oxenhope you’ll be welcomed into the spacious Exhibition Shed. Compartments will be called by number over the tannoy. Please wait until you hear your compartment before making your way to the platform. Our fully trained staff will open the compartment doors and will greet you at the end of the journey. Please remain seated until the door is opened. A one way system will be clearly marked out on the platform.
Will we need to wear a face covering?
Face coverings aren’t compulsory when inside the private compartments as you’ll only be sharing with your household or linked household. The law requires a face covering to be worn in any indoor public building, this includes the Exhibition Shed. Unless you are exempt, please bring a covering to wear whilst inside the shed.
