Attraction Information

Peasholm is a beautiful park; it has a tranquil lake on which people can hire boats of all sorts to enjoy the water at close quarters. Boats include traditional rowing boats and canoes of course, but pedalos with dragon heads are available too, and these prove to be extremely popular with the kids!

Check for times of Battle of Peasholme Park Naval Battle, which is excellent fun for the kids as oodles of model boats pretend to fight each other!

There is an island in the centre of the lake and a bridge leading across to it allows the visitor to explore the island with a path leading round it or by climbing up to the top with its impressive pagoda. The park has been designed with an oriental theme and there is much evidence of this as you wander through its pathways.

Make sure you take in the North Bay Railway across the road, the kids will love it and very reasonable at only a couple of quid.
