An eggs-elent time for all is guaranteed at Stephenson this Easter. 

This Good Friday, Codrophenia returns to Stephenson, serving up tasty fish'n'chips*, as well as other chippy treats.

Inside the Museum, take part in the Easter crafts, solve the trail to win a mini chocolate treat, have your face painted** and your photo taken. Guided by animal handling experts, For Paws, children can get up close to a selection of springtime creatures.

Our vintage 1950s carriages will be hauled by either a 1950s steam engine or heritage diesel locomotive.  

For visitors who book train seats in carriages B & C** there will be seasonal storytelling and magic throughout the journey. Advance booking is strongly recommended. There will be a limited number of seats tickets available to purchase on the day, but you are advised to book in advance to guarantee your ticket and preferred train time.

Don't forget to wear your best bonnet for the Easter Hat competition judged by Alice and the Easter Bunny.

*Please note that as these are traditional fish'n'chips, beef dripping is used. Veggie alternatives are available.

**Additional charges apply
