Welcome to Murton Park

COVID-19 Update:


In light of the announcement made by the Prime Minister on Monday 22nd February 2021, we are hoping to be able to open Murton Park in the following stages:


The outside areas will be able to reopen to visitors from Monday April 12th 2021 and it is hoped that the inside areas can follow on Monday May 17th 2021.


The DVLR will be running freight train and shunting demonstrations on Sundays and Bank Holidays from Sunday 18th April 2021, and hope to be able to resume their passenger services later on in the season when it’s safe and allowable to do so.


We very much look forward to welcoming back all our visitors to Murton Park, but until then we hope that you and those around you are staying safe and well.


All of the above dates are subject to change depending on the current guidance applicable at the time.
