What a wonderful day, sun is shining and the Miniature Railway at Marine Lake is in full steam. We love to walk around the lake or take a ride on a steam train around the lake. It is great watching families having fun whatever interests they love best; ie boating, walking, crabing, playing in the sand or just relaxing but... More

I'm always delighted to take my grandchildren(and their parents) to the Marine Lake. The volunteers who maintain this attraction always manage to educate and enthuse visitors. Young and old are assured of a warm welcome and an exciting journey often steam hauled around the Lake. My grandson when he visits, always demands that grandad takes him on the 'adventure'. There...

I have visited the railway several times with my two young daughters and we love it every time. Lovely train ride, gift shop all very reasonably priced. Ice creams, drinks. Would recommend you take cash. Brilliant museum with an old steam engine for the children to sit on. Whistles to pull, signals to change. Great fun. Clean toilets on site.... More

Great for the younger kids, they stop the train half way round and allow the children to sit in front and take photos. There is a really good park for them to play in too.

A lot of fun, well priced and not so long that young kids get bored. £2.50 for adults and £1.50 for kids is well priced. Will come back. Only downside is the nearby boat hire wasn't open but that was due to the wind so not their fault.
