“A miniature railway run by larger than life volunteers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

A delightful ride through Peasholm Park with picture opportunities of the open air theatre, not possible by any other means. Then on to Sea Life at the end of the line. The line hugs the coast for most of the mile long journey with great views across the bay. A great attraction for young and old alike.
