Our favourite event, the Summer Festival, returns to Audley End Miniature Railway this summer! Jam-packed with activities and entertainment for all the family, this spectacular summer-long festival offers everything to ensure a day full of excitement and wonder for children and adults alike.

In addition to the enchanting train ride through the Audley End Estate on our beautiful miniature steam railway, the summer months see the resident fairy and elves welcoming visitors to their charming woodland homes. Wander in awe through the magical groves and look out for the delightful fairy and elf homes hiding amongst the trees with our I Spy booklet.

Back at the picnic area, the fields will be adorned with beautifully decorated bell tents offering an array of activities led by our resident magical characters. You little one can get into character with colourful face painting, or roll up their sleeves and unleash their creativity in our crafting tent.


New faces this summer include a beautiful shimmering unicorn and mythical dragon who will delight and enthral young minds with spellbinding tales of their adventures from our storytellers – and will you spot them in their new woodland home?
