This was top of the Grandson’s list for a holiday on the Isle of Man. It may only be a short run but is great fun. The narrow gauge steam railway was originally built to carry Victorian visitors to the ‘zoo’ in the enclosures at...More
Groudle Glen Railway
Booking unavailable on TripAdvisor
Caught the tram to Groudle Glen, what a surprise when you got down from the main road. All the more so because it was a bright sunny day. It was a lovely walk through the woods along a stream to the railway station. Although this...More
An excellent place. Staff were friendly, great views and well turned out unique locomotives and rolling stock. A hidden gem finding the station in a natural glen, which adds to the interest. Obviously limited space to extend the line much further , but definitely a...More
I first went to Groudle in 1977 and that time there was barely a trace of the Victorian pleasue line to be seen. Now you see a faithful rebuilding with high attention to detail and much effort to re-create the scene as it must have...More

Enjoyable visit, though it was very crowded on Easter Sunday. Short journey to the coast and cafe. £4 per person reasonable for what the GGR has to offer. Obviously especially good for young children.
This is a volunteer run railway that leads down to the coast. Get off at the Groudle electric railway stop and walk down the glen to the railway. At busy times there is a queue but it is fun and worth it. Lovely views as...More
