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).

We went on this miniature railway and enjoyed our trip. Although just a short journey up behind the centre, the small steam engines are fascinating and travelling in the small coaches is fun. There is a shop and tea room too. A good place to...More

We accidentally turned up on a toddler day. As we were bringing our 3 year old it was a bonus. A nice setup, the train ride is a nice length for most and with a treasure trail to follow means it's not just a sit...More
