We stumbled upon Lappa Valley railway last minute whilst on holiday and it turned out to be the best paid-for day out we had! We felt it was good value as you paid for entry and everything was then included in that price, rather than...More

From the car park to the main park I’d say 10-15 mins ride. The smallest train ride is less than 5 mins. And the other one to the playground is just over 5 mins. Hope that helps.
