Santa Special - 10th Dec (CANCELLED)

UPDATE AT 08:50

It with regret that we are unable to run the Santa Specials today due to the poor weather conditions. The roads around Ruislip are slowly becoming grid locked with abandoned cars and the slippery conditions underfoot at the Lido have been deemed unsafe.

Please bear with us. Our priority is to contact everyone to advise them of the situation. We will offer full refunds to everyone. However, we are going to attempt to look at the possibility of running on Saturday 23rd December. This is subject to getting enough volunteers (and of course Santa!).

We are really sorry for any dissapointment this may have caused, and look forward to seeing you at the railway again in due course.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - Car Parking

As of Monday 12th June 2017, the London Borough of Hillingdon (LBH) have introduced changes to the two car parks at Ruislip Lido. Except for visitors to the Waters Edge restaurant, blue badge holders and holders of ‘HillingdonFirst’ cards, all other cars using the main car park (the one at the end of the road on the left) must now purchase a car parking ticket from the Pay & Display machines.

For full details, please visit the LBH’s Ruislip Lido page here: https://www.hillingdon.gov.uk/article/32416/Parking

Please note, the Ruislip Lido Railway is not responsible for the Lido car parks, and all queries relating to car parking should be directed to the London Borough of Hillingdon.

Searching the RLR on TfL

If you are trying to search for a journey on the RLR using the TfL Planner tool, then read on! There has been some changes made to the planner in recent months, which means our three stations now do not come up as suggestions. But they are still there, along with all of our timetabled trains. To make the tool work, you MUST type in "Ruislip Common" as the origin, destination or via point but DO NOT select the suggested Ruislip Common that appears in the drop down. Just type it in, then plan your journey. On the next page, the planner will ask you which one you want... And down at the bottom, are our stations:

Once you've done this, you can plan interchanges with our trains (when we are running of course!) and plan your drop off at London's least used and possibly London's only request station, Haste Hill (trains only drop off at Haste Hill from Woody Bay).
