Attraction Information

Barnards Miniature Railway is a brilliant family attraction set in the delightful grounds of Barnards Farm amongst sculptures, rivers and woodland. The Railway is great fun for children and adults alike, look out for their woodland friends along the line side including the big tall chicken!

The trains currently run from Burton Shaw to a Station called Belvedere. There families can alight and climb the Belvedere Mound offering unspoilt views over Essex and beyond, enjoy riverside picnics or let the kids run around as the adults unwind!

On certain days the whole farm is open to visitors and attractions include a motor museum, Cafe and guided walks. There is also the opportunity for children to learn how to drive vintage cars around the grounds!
