Spooky Wizard Weekend returns to the Watercress Line this Halloween

The Watercress Line is calling witches and wizards of all ages to come and make  magic and mischief this Halloween with the return of the railway’s popular Wizard  Weekend.    The event returns with an exciting array of activities from on 26th - 27th October.  It invites visitors to dress up as a Halloween spook and take unlimited rides on the Wizard Express steam train and walk in Harry’s footsteps on the real Kings Cross footbridge from the Harry Potter films.

Little ones will also have the opportunity to watch how to make a witch’s broomstick,  get their face painted into something scary and try their hand at some Halloween crafts. While spectacular owl and falcon displays, a host of creepy crawly creatures and the  spooky miniature railway also promise to entertain the whole family.  We have so  much for all the family to get involved in and enjoy a magical Halloween weekend to remember including the chance to explore the actual carriage used in Harry Potter films.

Visitors are encouraged to don their best spooky costumes for a chance to win a  special prize in the daily fancy dress competition.
