Witches and wizards of the North!

Become a whizz at wand waving, learn broomstick skills galore and discover how to produce all sorts of yucky potions. But – beware! There are all-powerful evil wizards on board who are out to ruin your fun! It’s up to you to stop them!

A whole host of colourful, hilarious characters will join you aboard this immersive adventure. Expect interactive performances, photo opportunities and exciting wizard-themed activities keeping you and the whole family immersed throughout this extraordinary trip of a lifetime.

The Wizarding Adventure at East Lancashire Railway will take approximately two hours.
