Attraction Information

Jump aboard a steam engine and journey on through the beautiful, Cornish countryside at Lappa Valley Steam Railway.

A nature park awaits you with plenty to see and explore. With another two railways to explore this is the ultimate paradise for train lovers, a real life Thomas the Tank Engine experience. The kids can let off some steam (pardon the pun) in one of the many family-friendly activity zones. Go crazy over a game of mini golf, or canoe and paddle your way over the lake. The woodland walk will whisk you away on a nature trail full of discovering. 

Carrying on the fun, kids can hop and climb their way over and under the adventure playground. Get dizzy on the swinging roundabout, or play driver on the play trains and ships. Play in the soft play area or try your hand at table football in the indoor play carriages. The Whistle Stop Cafe will provide the whole family with the perfect after play refuel, including a delicious kids menu.
