Hop on the 1830 Express and step back to a time to when cotton was king and railways were about to change the world forever.
Buy a ticket for the world’s first ever passenger railway and you’ll experience a train ride like no other.
Let our Explainer team take you on an action-packed, whistle stop tour of the railways whilst you speed up and down the original track that carried passengers from Manchester to Liverpool in 1830.
Please note: The train ride is suitable for all ages; the show content is suitable for ages 4+.
