Overview

A Railway Adventure in Eastbourne. Travel behind the famous one-eighth scale miniature locomotives as they meander for nearly a mile around the beautiful country park. Enjoy a pleasant stroll around the five-acre lake where nature and wildlife may be seen in their natural habitats. Relax in the prize-winning tea gardens with a beverage, lunch or Cream Tea from the railway style cafe. Picnic areas, model railways and the Railway Gift Shop. Also for the children is an adventure playground to help "let off steam".

Lots of climbing frames, slides and swings. Plenty to keep children happy for several hours. Multi ride tickets for the trains and a lovely walk around the park. Fun in the maze. Miniature railways to view as well as ride.

This is a magical place. Reasonably priced, £27 for a family of four with unlimited rides on the train. Take lots of 20p pieces as the children like to activate Thomas and other rides. There is plenty of places to eat your pic nic or...More

The EMSR is just lovely and ideal if you have young children. Everything about it was lovely and great value. Seeing a family of green woodpeckers made our day too!
