Currently the only public, steam working 9 1/2 inch gauge railway in the UK, Lakeshore Railroad was first opened in 1972 and is still going strong to this day! Running for just under a third of a mile round the boating lake, the tracks meander through the trees and over the level crossings before arriving back at the station.

A cafe can also be enjoyed on site with what is quoted as 'the best view seen from a cafe' due to the large open viewing of the train running by.

Open in excess of 200 days a year, do come and have a trip whether your young or just young at heart!
