Attraction Information

South Downs Light Railway runs through the grounds of Pulborough Garden Centre and out into the country.

Steam hauled trains run every weekend and Bank Holiday from March to September and also on Wednesdays in school holidays. Special events are held during the season and especially in December when Santa resides in his special grotto and steam trains run to North Pole Station to see him. Santa has a quality gift for every boy and girl and there's a seasonal drink for the adults.

Each year the resident teddy bears with lots of their friends and relatives have a picnic. Children bringing their own teddies to join in the fun get a free train ride!
