Perrygrove Railway runs for 3/4 mile through farmland and woods on the edge of the Forest of Dean. Ride the steam train to all our activities including the unique Treetop Adventure - 5 houses up in the trees, fully accessible and safe - our covered picnic and play area at Foxy Hollow, an Indoor Village with secret passages, and a den-building area in the woods. See our collection of vintage trains (operating on two special days each year). Unlock a casket of treasure! Fun guaranteed. Picnics welcome - or enjoy our cafe serving sandwiches and light refreshments. Lots of special events, including days when Mr. Chuffity is here to show children how the Friendly Engines work and tell stories. Low cost family tickets - nothing else to pay (except the optional Treasure Hunt).

I was bored on Sunday morning, I thought I will come visit this place, not a bad I like it. The train is tiny go through woodland to the top of a hill and I walked a path that lead back to the station, beautiful autumn leaves in yellow/red. I will visit again when the next is steam running.

There were plenty of train rides to be had and even rides behind the traction engines. A small exhibition of classic cars was to be had. Plenty for the kids to do... More

There are 2 stops where you can get off, one a woodland walk and the other a small playground with picnic area. Lovely treetop play area although it needs updating as looks very old but the... More

We were unsure if our children (6&7years) would be too young for this or if we would be bored. How wrong we were!! We had an amazing day. Kids ran, climbed, played and rode the train all day long. We also did the treasure hunt which was the best treasure hunt the kids have done. Well mapped out. Staff were... More

It is a waste of money for adults, we don't see nothing on a train, really short ride... is fine for kids, they have activities just for them

Mini stream train ride, park, tree top walk, woodland walk and a treasure hunt with chocolate at the end what... More

Train rides, treasure hunts, tree house adventure, woodland trails, hide and seek and a picnic all made for a fun day out with 8 & 3yr old grandchildren. Lovely friendly staff and a good cup of tea.
