We got the train from Peasholm park up to the Sea Life Centre. It's only about a 10 minute journey but it's really good fun, my 9 year old son loved it and you get great views along the coast.

Great for couples, families and children. Traditional seaside scenic train ride. Runs from near Open Air Theatre to north bay sea front. An atmospheric journey.

There is not a bus service that runs from near the Grand Hotel. The best option would be to get a taxi and ask them to bring you up to the ticket office at Peasholm Station. A return ticket would be £3.90
