Forthcoming Events & Experiences on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway

Events & Experiences

Throughout the year, in addition to operating our steam hauled and diesel railcar services, we have many special events, services and experiences for all members of the family and railway enthusiasts alike.

January, February & March

22nd February, ‘Bahamas’ Railtour to Carlisle

After two sell-out tours in 2019 of KWVR ‘Bahamas’ rail tours from Oxenhope to Carlisle, we are returning in 2020 for a journey over the Settle & Carlisle Railway behind 45596 ‘Bahamas’.

Steam trains every weekend throughout the January & February
In January & February, there may be frost or snow on the ground but you can still travel through the Worth Valley by steam train or diesel railcar at weekends right through the Winter.

9th & 20th February- Jurassic specials
Get up close with an animatronic T-Rex and Raptor, and join our Rangers as they teach you how to train a dinosaur. There’ll be cute baby dinosaurs for those not quite brave enough to meet the bigger boys, and live reptiles waiting to meet you too.


Saturday 15th February – Valentine’s Sparkle & Steam Special
If you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift this year, the Valentine’s Sparkle & Steam Special is a one-of-a-kind experience perfect for any prosecco lover.
Sit back and enjoy a relaxing journey through the Worth Valley in our Restaurant Car. This premium prosecco tasting experience includes afternoon tea with a romantic twist.
