About the show

The Railway Children

Until 3rd January 2016

King’s Cross Theatre, London


All aboard! This stunning adaptation of E. Nesbit’s classic novel The Railway Children is currently playing at London’s King’s Cross Theatre. Set in a new, purpose built 1,000 seat venue, this breath-taking show features a stage built around a real train track, and a beautiful 60-tonne locomotive that steams into the theatre to delight all ages.

A truly unique theatrical experience, The Railway Children has returned to London after winning the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and sell-out seasons in its previous home at Waterloo.

Don't miss your chance to join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis on the adventure of a lifetime as they tell the story of how they became the railway children.
