Overview

PECORAMA - one of East Devon's leading visitor attractions, is set on a hillside above the pictureque fishing village of Beer. It is home to the mile-long Beer Heights Light Railway with its fleet of miniature steam locomotives; the famous PECO Model Railway Exhibition featuring superbly detailed layouts in every major gauge and the PECO Millennium Celebration Garden, five stunning Garden "rooms" based on a celestial theme. Children's activity areas feature the wonderful new indoor 'Play Staion' plus an extensive range of outdoor play equipment, whilst grown-ups can try their skill and stamina on the Crazy Golf course and Fitness Trail. There is a varied programme of entertainment throughout the summer season, including children's shows featuring jesters, clowns and magicians performing under cover of our own big top, the PECO Marquee. The displayed opening times are for the summer season only (Easter to October). During our low season, the Beer Heights Light Railway and Gardens close but the Model Railway Exhibition & Shop, Garden Room Restaurant and Play Station Soft Play area remain open. Please see our website for these facilities’ winter opening hours.

Worth the steep climb! What a beautifully kept little place, every member of staff was cheerful, friendly and the gardens were fantastic, great little train ride, Crazy golf and a look round the model railway. We were like big kids.

We had such a perfect time, and our 5 year old grandson loved it so much, that we returned twice during our holiday! Lots to do here, and if the weather isn’t too good there’s a large soft-play area for the kids to enjoy. Also,...More

Visited after hearing about this at a train show in the states. What a hidden gem. So much to do for both adults and children. Something every train lover should visit.

We were a group of 4 children (5 and under) and 5 adults, who visited slightly sceptically expecting lots of model railways and a small play area with some gardens. We were pleasantly surprised though. There is so much to do here for people of...More
