West Hoe Park is the perfect place to bring your children. Situated in a decent sized grassed area right on the waterfront are the infamous Gus Honeybun Trains. Loved by kids of all ages for generations, they were first put there in 1953 and are still growing more popular as the years go by. To go with them there is a huge bouncy castle, spinning cooking pots and a kiosk selling snacks and beverages. All rides are 50p each and you do get a decent ride 10minutes on the bouncy castle!! What's not to like :) . Down the other end of the park there are other amusements including crazy golf and a free park with swings and slides etc.

Lovely little park situated on the Hoe. There are train rides, other fair rides and a bouncy castle. All at the brilliant price of 50p a ride! The people are all so friendly and a little cafe too.

Visited with my 4 year old grandson and a beautiful early summers day. Planned on staying a couple of hours but he enjoyed it so much I had to put another 2 hours in the parking meter (which is probably the only drawback - parking)
