Owner description: A Railway Adventure in Eastbourne. Travel behind the famous one-eighth scale miniature locomotives as they meander for nearly a mile around the beautiful country park. Enjoy a pleasant stroll around the five-acre lake where nature and wildlife may be seen in their natural habitats. Relax in the prize-winning tea gardens with a beverage, lunch or Cream Tea from the railway style cafe. Picnic areas, model railways and the Railway Gift Shop. Also for the children is an adventure playground to help "let off steam".

“Take the Tots..they will love it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I took my 2yr old grandson and he loved it. There could be a few more little bits to play on around the plastic house ,but theres enough to keep under 3s occupied for a couple of hours. you need the weather on your side.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Loved the steam train and went on it 8 times! Worth buying the ticket that allows this. Lots of small tracks and model railways to enjoy (20p pieces needed) and good playground and picnic facilities. Loved it!

“Excellent family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

The centre piece is a small railway which you sit on for rides around a picturesque lake. In the week they use a diesel train but at wekends they use some of the wonderful steam locos. The line includes a tunnel, bridge and level crossing and is fun for all the family, entrance includes a ride on the train, you can buy extra rides for £2 or an unlimted ride pass. There are also climbing and actvity playgrounds for the kids including dolls/play houses and everything is centrally located around a cafe and picnic area so you can bring your own refreshmenst. the toilets were spotless and there is a nice little shop. Great family run enterprise which all the family from 3 to 76 enjoyed and not far from Eastbourne retail parks if you ned to do some shopping as well!

“FUN DAY OUT FOR KIDS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Great day out for children with train rides and playground equipment. Parents can relax with a cuppa and snack while the little-uns amuse themselves in a secure enveronment.
Perhaps the addition of a paddling pool wouldn't be amiss.
