Looking for an impressive and fun setting to host a children's birthday party? We think you'll like our party package, in which celebrations take place in Locomotion's massive Collection Building alongside a selection of stunning locomotives and intriguing vehicles from the National Collection. 

Book your children's birthday with us and your group will be granted exclusive access to the front or centre gallery space in Locomotion's Collection Building from 5.30pm until 7pm, including access to selected vehicle cabs and a fun party trail. 

To make your party extra special you can add a range of delicious catering options from our Cafe No 1 and souvenir party bags. Still not special enough? Add an extra dash of excitement to the occasion by hiring out our diesel train (subject to availability) to really bring the party to life.

The cost of a party booking is £200, with additional charges for catering, party bags and train hire.

To find out more and make a booking, please fill out a booking form and contact Events Officer Pam Porter on 01904 685784.
