Day out with our grandson
Jun 2021
Had a lovely day at the Eastbourne’s Miniature Steam Railway. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. The place is very clean and tidy. There is plenty to do with a toddler. The food was great and served very quickly. The lovely coffee needs a special mention. The trip on the railway is of course the highlight! Thank you EMSR. We will be visiting again! 10/10 from us!

Brilliant day out and such lovely staff
May 2021 • Family
We had a simply brilliant day here with family friends and our 4 children under 5. Kids had several goes on the steam railway and enjoyed the little walk with playgrounds on the way, waving at the trains, getting lost in the maze and playing in the numerous playgrounds.
Staff were all lovely, the place is kept spotless and staff were very thorough with the cleaning. Food from the cafe was beautifully presented and all very reasonably priced!

Excellent day out
May 2021 • Family
Very much recommend. I took my daughter aged 3. She loved the three playgrounds, the train, the maze and the nature walk. Decent value for money. Would definitely go back!

Great young family day out
May 2021 • Family
This is just such a lovely place for young children. Great parks, one for toddlers and one for older children, lovely train ride around the lake. A few miniature railways set up you can make go round for 20p. All food and ice cream is very reasonably priced. Lots of wooden play houses which my daughter loved. It's a nice simple family day out.

Kids would love it
Oct 2020
We went to see the Steam Trains but once there saw it was a diesel train. Apparently the steam trains only run at weekends & we went on a Tuesday. It states this on the leaflet but we see a leaflet until we'd paid our money & gone in.

We had a ride on the train, quite fun then had a walk round before leaving.

Lovely little place for younger children
Oct 2020 • Family
This is a really nice little place which I think is aimed at younger children with its well equipped park and small toddler area. The mini train ride is fun. Currently limited to 1 ride per person rather then the usual unlimited rides pre-COVID. There were all the measures in place that there could be to follow to COVID guidelines.
Toilets were clean. The kiosk offered a good selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks and ice creams etc. If you have a few extra pennies it’s fun to watch the tiny trains go round at a cost of 20p a go. A little walk to the other side of the fishing pond takes you to a second smaller play park and picnic area. My 3 year old thoroughly enjoyed the maze as well. I think we will be regular visitors next year when it reopens in spring after the winter.

What a Birthday Treat!
Sep 2020 • Family
Took my wife, daughter and grandson for the day before his 4th birthday. What a lovely day... 💖 The measures that they had put in place for social distancing were spot on, they were always cleaning around the site. The train journey was excellent and very good value, even for repeat rides at £2. The food was amazing and beautifully served and the adventure playgrounds were very well maintained. Our grandson loved the maze and the woodland walk. All in all, a wonderful day!!! Thanks so much EMSR!,

Remember to take lots of 20p for the displays.

Brilliant!

Choo Choo! Woohoo!
Aug 2020 • Family
Visited with my wife and our little boy. He is not even 2 yet but this was one of the best places we have visited. He loved everything from the train rides, to the play areas. Can't wait for our next visit and hopefully with more of the family next time.

Just as fantastic as always
Aug 2020 • Family
Have been coming here for a few years with our kids (age 0-7) and it never fails to be charming, such good value for money and just really lovely! From the normal priced tea/coffee and ever improved gardens and play areas it’s so nice it’s kept it charm. Functioned really well with sensible Covid measures in place.
