The history of Train Time

With the birth of their daughter Birdie in 2020, Jim and Beth were quickly thrown into the world of children’s play activities.

With so many standard messy play and soft play sessions out there, Jim (a huge train enthusiast!) felt there was something missing - an environment to let children play in a safe, calm space, 'playing trains'. 

Out of this Train Time UK was founded. With 20+ years of teaching and franchise experience, Jim and Beth have created successful stay and play sessions and events that are accessible to all.

It’s a place that's perfect for boys and girls, where Mums, Dads, friends and Grandparents can relax and let their little ones’ imagination roam free, building towers and bridges, constructing track, dressing up, and generally getting 'all aboard!'.

Train Time franchise can offer you:

  • Flexible family-friendly working hours. It's your choice how often and when you work. The more you work, the more you can earn!
  • Affordable start-up package which includes equipment, uniform and marketing materials.
  • Access to an inspiring HQ team for hands on help to success.
  • Very low overheads.

"I have the pleasure of seeing joy and delight on children's faces at every session. Children and their parents are always amazed at the scale of your train track and I just love seeing them having fun and interacting with other children."
Amy - Train Time UK Franchisee, Stourbridge.
