About The Railway Children

All aboard! The stunning adaptation of E Nesbit’s classic novel The Railway Children arrives at London's King's Cross Station.  

Set in a brand new, purpose built 1,000 seat venue, The Railway Children features a stage built around a real train track, and a beautiful 60 tonne vintage locomotive that steams into the theatre to delight all ages.

A truly unique theatrical experience, The Railway Children returns to London after winning the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment in its previous home at Waterloo.
