Autumn Teddy Bears’ Weekend
September 30 - October 1
“If you go down to the woods today……” well not the woods exactly, in fact your big surprise is actually at the Midland Railway – Butterley. You will be greeted by the larger than life Butterley Bear and there will be special Teddy Bears’ displays around the railway, featuring about 200 bears of all shapes and sizes. There is a themed children’s competition and as a special offer, any child brought in by their own Teddy Bear will be able to travel free of charge.
All of the usual attractions will be open too.
Trains depart from Butterley Station at 11am, 12.20pm, 2pm and 3.20pm.
Get off the train to explore the museum complex at Swanwick Junction and catch a later train back (not possible for the 3.20pm departure).
