  • Heritage Experience Terms and Conditions:

    • Heritage Experience participants must be aged 18 or over. Although there is no upper age limit, the participant should be generally healthy enough for light manual work.

    • Participants must be able to climb into the locomotive cab from the platform. Please also note that the cab may be a relatively confined space.

    • Please ensure that you choose the correct date and time when booking an Experience. Bookings may be re-arranged at no extra cost, provided this is arranged no more than 14 days before the date of your original booking.

    • You may cancel your booking for a full refund within five working days. After this time, we will only be able to rearrange your Heritage Experience.

    • Missed Heritage Experiences cannot be refunded or rearranged.

    • Heritage Experiences that are purchased as a gift must be redeemed within two years from the date of purchase.

    • Whilst we are generally able to accommodate most reasonable alterations to bookings, we cannot always guarantee to do so.

    • In the event that the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway Company (1983) Ltd. are not able to honour an Experience, for example, following the failure of a locomotive, we will seek to reschedule your Experience for another suitable date and time. If this is not possible, then we will issue a full refund.

  • You will receive confirmation of your order via email within 10 minutes of purchase and a subsequent email that will include an information sheet for your visit.

    Your order will not be shipped, please note purchasing this item will be via digital document only.
