Running times 

The train runs daily, between 9 April and 31 October:

  • 10am and 4pm
  • 10am and 5pm during school summer holidays.  

The train leaves from Hengistbury Head car park every 30 minutes, on the hour and half hour. No trains run between 1pm and 1:30pm. 

The train returns from Mudeford spit approximately every 30 minutes, at quarter to and quarter past the hour. 

During poor weather or extremely low demand may mean we suspend the service for that day. Updates can be found on the land train Facebook page or by calling us on 01202 425 517

On weekends and school holidays we often run two trains. This means they are about every 20 minutes.  


The train service runs between the main car park at Hengistbury Head (BH6 4EN) and Mudeford Spit. 


You can only board the train at the main terminus by the Hiker Cafe or at the Mudeford Spit terminus.


One carriage on the train has access for wheelchairs.
