Fun for all the Family!

Exciting Family Days Out on The Shakespeare Express

Families are always welcome on The Shakespeare Express. Our Family Tickets are valid for 2 Adults and 2 Children between 5 and 15 years of age. Children under 5 do not require a ticket, but will need to travel on a parent or guardian’s lap as the child will not be assigned a seat.

A Family ticket from Birmingham to Stratford-upon-Avon and return is £ 70 when booked in advance. Journey A departs Birmingham Snow Hill at 10:00 arriving into Stratford at 11:37. If you then catch Journey D as your return, departing at 16:13 this affords you over 4 hours to explore Shakespeare’s Birthplace, the Royal Shakespeare Company (including the Clock Tower) or take to the river on a cruse. The more adventurous amongst you might consider renting your own row-boat or a punt – don’t forget the straw hat!

A Family ticket beginning your adventure in Stratford-upon-Avon and departing on Journey B at 12:36, returning on Journey C costs only £ 70 when booked in advance. Why not take advantage of this amazing offer and enjoy the speed, sights, sounds (and smells) of a fully functional mainline steam locomotive.



As an added bonus, order a Picnic Mamper for two (you get to take the hamper home) or Afternoon Tea Picnic Box full of delicious goodies, waiting for you at your table. Hampers and Picnic Boxes must be pre-ordered when booking.


The Castle Picnic Hamper for 2 - £89.00

(Do not forget to take the hamper home!)


Afternoon Picnic Box - £19.50.
