Overview

Perrygrove Railway runs for 3/4 mile through farmland and woods on the edge of the Forest of Dean. Ride the steam train to all our activities including the unique Treetop Adventure - 5 houses up in the trees, fully accessible and safe - our covered picnic and play area at Foxy Hollow, an Indoor Village with secret passages, and a den-building area in the woods. See our collection of vintage trains (operating on two special days each year). Unlock a casket of treasure! Fun guaranteed. Picnics welcome - or enjoy our cafe serving sandwiches and light refreshments. Lots of special events, including days when Mr. Chuffity is here to show children how the Friendly Engines work and tell stories. Low cost family tickets - nothing else to pay (except the optional Treasure Hunt).

This is really very expensive for what it is. £25.75 for a family ticket sounds ok however, really there is only the train ride (very short) that you feel like the money is going to. There are a few outdoor playgrounds and a few walks...More

Yes fine for children up to about 13 years I'd say 👍 probably need about 2 hours there then across the road is puzzle wood which is well worth a visit too, absolutely beautiful.
