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".

“Excellent place to spend a couple of hours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I love this place along with many others with young children. It is perfect for children around 7 and under with their outdoor play areas, miniature railway and walks around the lake.
Yearly membership is reasonably priced and the cafe too making it a perfect quiet place to spend a few hours in Eastbourne's sunny weather!!

“Easter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Was brilliant!! Went with the family for Easter Sunday and the children loved it! The train was perfect and was finished off with someone dressed as a bunny giving out chocolate. The children were amazed :)

“toot toot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We go here at least once a week in good weather. The cafe is out doors it is clean and the food is good. They dont do chips which is part of the reason I take my son, & he will always choose a sandwich box which is very good value. It is family run and a wonderful safe haven from some of the busier venues of childrens entertainment locally. Plenty of room to let of steam for kids, and yet relaxed and not too expensive here mum can sit and drink tea and enjoy the sun.

“Good for a couple of hours, not enough to do for a whole day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This place is good if you want to pop in for a couple of hours. They charge extra for the train rides £1 per ride. The play area is average and could do with more things in it. There is a tea and coffee area so adults can sit down or grab a cup of tea or coffee.

“Fun with train-loving youngsters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We enjoyed the site with a 3-year-old nephew - after train stuff there is a playground and picnic area - good for a small summer outing, but not a long day out as not that much to do (we went to the seaside afterwards)
