All aboard the train as it’s full steam ahead for Poplar’s Miniature Railway

Children (and the young at heart) can jump on board a miniature train to take a scenic railway tour of our beautiful gardens.

At Poplar Nurseries, we are well-known for our amazing selection of plants and garden accessories as well as the delicious food served in our restaurant and food hall.

But now it is the children who are asking to have a day out at Poplar Nurseries so they can have a ride on the miniature train.

Travel through our stunning landscaped gardens on one of our miniature trains, there has never been a better time than now to hop on board and enjoy a ride.

Poplar Lady was built for the line in 2013 and is powered by batteries and has completed 3,000 miles of service at Poplar Nurseries.

Tickets to ride on the miniature railway cost £2 per person for the first ride and £1 for any subsequent rides on the same day. Children under four-years-old can travel for free but must be supervised by an adult.

You can now also buy an all-day wristband for £5 which gives the holder unlimited rides on the main train all day. Card payments only and no booking required.

Visit our nurseries at Marks Tey and get on track for fun and laughter.
