The Leighton Buzzard Railway is located on the south side of the Bedfordshire market town of Leighton Buzzard. It is only 40 miles (65km) to the north of central London, and a short journey from most places in the northern Home Counties and southern Midlands.
The Railway is within easy reach of the M1 motorway, the A5 trunk road, and London Luton Airport. The main line from London Euston, the Grand Union Canal, and National Cycle Route 6 all pass through the town. We're so easy to find!
The Leighton Buzzard Railway's trains start from Page's Park station – postcode LU7 4TG. This is to the south of the town centre, on the eastern side of Billington Road, and alongside the public park of the same name.
There are large signs at our entrance, and free all-weather car and coach parking.
