“A Fun Ride”

Hastings Miniature Railway
Ranked #12 of 71 things to do in Hastings
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 October 2017

When visiting Hastings water front, make sure you have a ride on the miniature railway, either one way or return. We were glad to sit and ride after spending time walking in the area.
It lasts a few minutes, but is interesting to sit and watch whilst travelling along. Well done to the helpers (some children) and volunteers who keep it running.

A visit to Hastings is not complete with out a ride on the train, ideal if you travel towards the East and walk back through the Old Town. Shame it is not steam though as it was once many years ago. Children will enjoy.

Thanks for the review. Steam does operate on most days through the holidays and nice weekends throughout the year, however we cannot gaurantee it will always be running due to steaming times and poor weather forecasts.

We came across the train and used it as a quick way to old town to save my legs. It was reasonably priced and entertaining as we rocked along. Would definitely use it again, much more fun than the bus!

The railway links Old town to the main attractions and the end stations are at the museum area and the go-cart track, so it is well-planned.
