Summer Holidays – Trains to the Seaside

All aboard – the train is now departing!

The railway arrived in Folkestone 180 years ago, with the towns first station opening on the 28th June 1843. The arrival of the railway would lead Folkestone grow more than ten times the size it was beforehand – that’s how important the railway was! We’ll be making steam engine driver hats, green & red guards flags (whistles optional) and also building a railway themed window displays during the week.

Activities run downstairs in our learning space (11am-12.45pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm) and are suitable for ages 4-11, but if you’re older or younger you’ll still be more than welcome.

Please note that last entry to the activity is 30 minutes before the session ends; 12.15pm and 3.00pm respectively.

No booking is necessary, although if it gets a little busy we may have limits numbers for everyone’s comfort and safety, a voluntary donation towards materials would be gratefully received.
