There is something incredibly special about the romance of the railway and the team at the award-winning East Lancashire Railway give you the chance to make the most of it at their unique wedding venue.
Set in the rural heartland of Lancashire, winding over 12 miles through the beautiful Irwell Valley, the railway has been a focal point of Lancastrian life since its original opening in the glory days of the Industrial Revolution. Now, over 100 years later, the railway is a truly unique venue for the most important day of your life.
Whether you wish to get married at one of our traditional stations or the historic museum, enjoy an intimate and sophisticated wedding breakfast on board our Orient Express style dining carriages or toast to marital bliss with a champagne reception inside the panoramic Observation Saloon, there are a range of options which can be tailored to make your celebration even more special.
Bury Bolton Street Station offers full vintage-style experience, with a ceremony for up to 100 guests under the traditionally decorated canopy followed by drinks, dancing and even afternoon tea!
We offer a number of packages, including many different options that allow you to create the perfect day for you. Whether you wish to hold the ceremony followed by drinks and afternoon tea with us or you would like to experience a three course meal aboard the Dining Train followed by an evening reception at Bury Bolton Street or Bury Transport Museum, we can cater for you.
