Autism & SEN Sessions

We are extremely excited to announce that we have just launched some more dedicated Autism & SEN Friendly Sessions throughout our Woodland Adventure Days and Summer Festival! After the huge success of our dedicated session at Easter we have decided to make them a permanent session within our timetable. The following changes have been made to their experience: 


- The sessions will be at the beginning of the day so visitors will be the first customers on site and the site will therefore be quieter.
- Parking will be in our main car park for close access to the site
- Reduced or eliminated queueing time
- Reduced volume of sound/music & no microphones
- No flashing lights or unexpected events/sounds
- All staff will be trained to reflect the advice the specialist and parents have given us


We will also have dedicated sessions for our Halloween Special & Christmas Special

Autism & Sen Friendly Sessions can now been booked via our website - www.audley-end-railway.co.uk

Firstly the checking in was very easy, when the train arrived they explained the procedure. They then cleaned the train so was definitely taking Covid seriously. The train ride was lovely and there was some nice touches of Easter displays around the tracks. We then pulled into an area to watch a show with the Easter bunnies. We loved the interaction with the children. After the train we went through the forest to all the displays there. The children had a booklet to interact with too. The play area was amazing, Stanley loved this. There was lots of seating areas and whilst we didn’t eat there I did see the food and it look very appealing and reasonably priced. Overall we had a great day out.
