At the northwest end of Transport for London’s Central line, the Ruislip Lido Railway has been closed since March due to Covid-19.
However, after an announcement by the UK government allowing tourist attractions to start to re-open, this weekend will mark the first time it’s been open since a lockdown was enforced earlier in the year. They have managed to put in place measures to make sure the safety of the volunteers and visitors is protected by limiting capacity, changing the way that tickets are sold and having a system in place to stop people from breaking social distancing rules.
The Ruislip Lido Railway is a volunteer run organisation that runs miniature trains in the London Borough of Hillingdon. The railway was born after world war I & II – and the austerity that followed – to give Londoners somewhere new to visit.
For anyone wishing to visit the beautiful attraction in the leafy suburbs I have included a link below for further details and updates from the railway.
