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.

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".

The miniature railway with its own nature reserve on the marshes is right in the heart of Eastbourne while being right in the heart of the country. Lovely café serving hot and cold drinks, cakes and snacks.
