The railway is a privately owned line with a return trip of 1½ miles between 4 different stations, each with paths leading into ancient woods. No charge for extra rides.
At the main station there is a wonderful Treetop Adventure – five houses high among the trees with access by a wheelchair and buggy friendly ramp. Under cover there is a fascinating Indoor Village with Secret Passages – ideal for hide-and-seek! A covered picnic and play area is at Foxy Hollow, a short stroll from Oakiron station.
Perrygrove is the home of the world’s largest collection of historic vehicles from the early days of 15” gauge railways developed by Sir Arthur Heywood.
Our café offers hot and cold drinks and light refreshments at reasonable prices but we also welcome picnics, for which seats are provided in the open and under cover. We have party rooms for birthdays.
Disabled visitors are welcome. The woodland paths are steep and uneven. Outdoor clothes and shoes are needed in the wood.
Operating dates on our website. No need to book in advance except for evening Ghost Trains and at Christmas when Father Christmas actually comes down the chimney to meet children and hand out presents in a magical atmosphere which is unique to Perrygrove.
