Perrygrove Railway runs for 3/4 mile through farmland and woods on the edge of the Forest of Dean. Ride the steam train to all our activities including the unique Treetop Adventure - 5 houses up in the trees, fully accessible and safe - our covered picnic and play area at Foxy Hollow, an Indoor Village with secret passages, and a den-building area in the woods. See our collection of vintage trains (operating on two special days each year). Unlock a casket of treasure! Fun guaranteed. Picnics welcome - or enjoy our cafe serving sandwiches and light refreshments. Lots of special events, including days when Mr. Chuffity is here to show children how the Friendly Engines work and tell stories. Low cost family tickets - nothing else to pay (except the optional Treasure Hunt).

We stayed nearby at The Dome Garden and this was a perfect outing with very young children. You only need a couple of hours to do it all and the kids treasure hunt is an inspired idea - simple but kept ours fully engaged and...More

Brilliant family day out. Informative and helpful staff who always had time to explain how the steam engine works, whats happening next, and everything about the railway. Definitely return

As grandparents and railway enthusiasts, this place works for us. We were in the area, without our "Little People" this time, and stopped by to do no more than have a look "over the fence" and go. However the price for unlimited train rides, two...More

I took my 4.8 year old son up to Perrygrove first the first time last Sunday and we loved it. Everything about Perrygrove is quality. The staff, the trains, the grounds and activities. We felt like family as soon as we arrived. A brilliant place...More

A hit with young boys. We spent about 3+ hrs there; the playground, the treetop adventure, finding the treasure and of course the railway! The ham sandwiches there are also great! Highly recommend!

An amazing place to visit when your child is in a wheelchair. The tree houses are wheelchair accessible and every train has ramped wheelchair access. Staff very friendly and helpful. I would challenge the owner to think of including a disabled toilet that is suitable...More

We went on this miniature railway and enjoyed our trip. Although just a short journey up behind the centre, the small steam engines are fascinating and travelling in the small coaches is fun. There is a shop and tea room too. A good place to...More
