Everybody loves a steam engine and we have got two of the prettiest ones for our line at Poplar. The railway is now open, giving rides behind Poppy and Yeo, with a bit of help from their diesel friend Poplar Lady.
Suitable for people of all ages but especially for young children, our line runs for 350 yards from the station in front of the play area.
The railway was designed to complement the lovely gardens and winds its way gently around Orchard Curve, Cottage Crossing and Folly Bank, taking three minutes to complete the circuit.
Prices are £2 for everybody over the age of three for the first ride, but hold on to your tickets, as all subsequent rides on the same day are £1.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RAILWAY DOES NOT ACCEPT PAYMENT BY CARD. APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE OPENING HOURS TO THE LEFT OF THIS PAGE ARE FOR THE GARDEN CENTRE AND NOT THE RAILWAY.
