What a place. So much fun to visit. Great value at £1 a ride. Lovely volunteers, very friendly and helpful. On-site food is from the Garden Centre cafe, so not cheap. Local pubs nearby. Served by bus inc Sundays.

My wife and I stumbled upon this railway within the Van Hage garden centre. The staff are absolutely brilliant and the setup of the railway is superb. It's unbelievable that it's only £1 per person. Our 11 month old son absolutely loved it!

This little Railway is run very professionally and seems to be enjoyed by adults and children alike. My Grandchildren always want to go on it whenever we visit the Garden Centre. It is inexpensive with "proper" tickets ..
