Get ready for a sprinkle of fairy dust in Essex this July as the Summer Festival returns to Audley End Miniature Railway. Jam-packed with activities and entertainment for all the family, this spectacular summer-long festival offers a day full of excitement and wonder for children and adults alike. And now Essex Baby readers can get half-price entry on the opening weekend!
As well as the usual enchanting train ride through the Audley End Estate on the attraction’s beautiful miniature steam railway, the summer months see the resident fairy and elves welcoming visitors to their woodland homes. Guest have the opportunity to wander through magical groves and look out for the fairy and elf homes that are hidden amongst the trees with our I Spy booklet.
The picnic area also undergoes a magical makeover at this time of year. The fields will be adorned with decorated bell tents, each with an activities inside led by the railway’s resident fairytale characters, such as face painting and crafting.
There are a couple of new character additions this year, including a shimmering unicorn and mythical dragon – who will spot them in their new woodland home first?
If your little one are bursting with excitement, they will be able to get involved with the fun activities in the Games area.
