The Wicksteed Park Railway

The Wicksteed Park Railway is one of the most iconic features of the Park today. Over 15 million people have taken to its rails since it first opened in 1931. It was the last feature of the Park to be added during the lifetime of the Park's founder, Charles Wicksteed, who sadly died just two weeks before it opened to the public.
