50th anniversary exhibition
50 years on, the land train is still going from strength to strength. Here's how we're celebrating
Throughout 2018, we celebrated 50 years of the land train taking generations of passengers between the Hiker Cafe and Mudeford Spit.
30th March 2018 - 5th August 2018
The Hengistbury land train at 50. 50 years of joy, headlines and nostalgia
Our exhibition showcased photographs and information from the past 50 years. With help from the relatives of the land train's founders, we're piecing together as much as we can to help paint the picture from 1st April 1968 to the present day.
Share your memories
As part of the exhibition, you can still share your memories with us - new or old! They may even feature in the exhibition. Why not stop by the courtyard and jump into our 'selfie station' to have a picture of you driving the train? Find out how you can upload your photos.
There is a range of souvenirs to celebrate the Golden Jubilee - these are available from the Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre shop, the train office, and other outlets.
A new piece of play equipment
We commissioned a fabulous new piece of play equipment to keep the little ones entertained whilst they wait for Mallard, Shelduck or Dunlin to come and collect them from the Broadway terminus (by the Hiker Cafe).
