A Railway Adventure in Eastbourne. Travel behind the famous one-eighth scale miniature locomotives as they meander for nearly a mile around the beautiful country park. Enjoy a pleasant stroll around the five-acre lake where nature and wildlife may be seen in their natural habitats. Relax in the prize-winning tea gardens with a beverage, lunch or Cream Tea from the railway style cafe. Picnic areas, model railways and the Railway Gift Shop. Also for the children is an adventure playground to help "let off steam".

Excellent if you have a toddler who loves trains. Everything is reasonably priced, entry was a little over £5 with one train ride or £2 more for unlimited rides. It's definatly worth getting unlimited. The track goes around a lake for about 5 minutes. You...More
