Fire and Ice!

Come Ice Skating on real ice at Sheffield Park Station in the unique and amazing location of the Locomotive Shed. Glide across the ice and see where the locomotives are prepared in the morning before they steam up and down the preserved railway line through 11 miles of beautiful countryside. Enjoy the interactive exhibits in SteamWorks! also in the locomotive shed.

Visit Sheffield Park to skate only or add an All-Day Rover Ticket to your booking and travel behind one of our vintage steam locomotives. It’s Kids for a Quid for February Half Term, so make the most of this huge discount.

Our All Day Rover Tickets let you hop on and off our service trains all day with this flexible ticket to travel, and make the most of all our unique stations have to offer at a leisurely pace.

With this ticket you can start your journey at any of our four stations, but don’t forget to refer to the timetable for the day of travel so you can plan where and when you will catch your trains.
