Nestled within 25 acres of gorgeous countryside you'll find Buckinghamshire Railway Centre, which is accessible via the A41. It is a heritage railway centre that originally dates back to 1851. Today, you can even offer your guests steam train rides! The venue is glass-roofed providing natural light onto the spacious platform that can accommodate up to 150 guests for your ceremony and wedding breakfast.
You will be surrounded by vintage steam trains on either side of the platform encapsulating you in your own wedding bubble. Alternatively, if you would like an intimate ceremony you can use The Oxford Room with a capacity maximum of 30 guests. Evening receptions are permitted for up to 180 guests with a dancefloor and PA system available. Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is a romantic, alternative, countryside venue which provides endless photographic opportunities.
Taking four years to construct with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the University of Oxford, the railway was dismantled and transported to its new location in Quainton in 2001. It was opened in 2004 and has been the site for some big names in film and television including Midsummer Murders, Endeavour and Doctor Who.
Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is perfect for intimate gatherings in The Oxford Room or large celebrations on The Platform.
The Oxford Room
This room is suitable for smaller, intimate ceremonies with a capacity up to 30 guests.
The Platform is sheltered with a glass roof that allows natural daylight to flood the area. You can have up to 150 guests for your ceremony and seated wedding breakfast. In addition, your evening reception can be accommodated here for up to 180 guests.
The cost of hiring Buckinghamshire Railway Centre is dependent on the day. The cost of all day venue hire, tables and chairs on a Saturday is a fixed fee of £3,700. For all other days the fixed fee is £3,000. They operate on a schedule of one wedding a weekend so you can set up for your big day on the Friday if your wedding is on the Saturday.
This venue does not provide in-house catering, however, they have a recommended supplier whom they've known for years and is familiar with their kitchen. Alternatively, they are happy for you to hire external caterers.

Quainton Road Station
My daughter had her wedding here - such an amazing place for a wedding, especially if you like a vintage vibe and something a bit different.
The most beautiful venue for a wedding. So many friends were amazed at the setting and the very helpful staff, caterers, bar and band.
