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.

We went to Pecorama during the low season just to look at the model trains and give the children some time in the brilliant indoor play area. It's still worth our one hour drive as the place is simply ideal for the boys to play...More

Visited today...very enjoyable. Had anticipated that there would be more layouts however the ones that were there were of a high standard. Excellent shop for any train enthusiast. Enjoyed the ride through the gardens on the light railway. Good value for money.

They close for the winter months sadly...but I'm sure it would be damned cold on the high headland location!
