The Alford Valley Railway is an established success. It is a delight for all ages and transports passengers through woodlands into `Haughton Park where pleasant walks can be taken.

The railway runs from Alford to a nearby park via a golf course. The park has plenty of well maintained childrens' play equipment.

A little train to the park and back with a good view of the golf course. Would not pay full price for this attraction as all you see is about 3 mins of golf course and some trees and some fences.

The kids love this train. If your staying at Haughton House Holiday Park, this is a great way to go back and forth into Alford. I would recommend getting an annual or weekly pass as it works out a lot cheaper.
