Join us this February half-term for a train ride on the Poplar Miniature Railway

At Poplar Nurseries we’re very excited to announce that the Poplar Miniature Railway will be reopening on Saturday 17th February until Sunday 25th February between 10:30am – 3:00pm for half-term. We’ll then reopen the train at Easter, when we will be running services throughout the Easter holidays.


This will be the first time our engines, Poplar Lady and Rosie, will be running under the care of Poplar Nurseries and we hope you will join us to mark this new chapter in the railway’s history.


The railway celebrated its tenth anniversary last year and in that time thousands of visitors have enjoyed taking a leisurely trip around the beautifully kept gardens at Poplar Nurseries on the 350 yard line.


Under 4’s travel for free on the train when accompanied by a standard ticket holder and no booking is required in advance. For more information, please visit our Poplar Miniature Railway page.
