Visited on holiday and really nice mini train ride. People and staff very friendly. Lasts for 7 minutes and then you can visit sea life and few cliffs on other end. Good value too £ 4 return as often as you like that,day.

I've been riding this miniature railway for many years and still enjoy every trip! The kids love it, I love it... A bit of cheap, cheerful fun.

Decided to take the train to the sea life centre to see the coastline. Inexpensive clean and helpful staff. Very informative staff knew the area and the history.

My son wanted to go on the train so not wanting to deny a 6 year old we splashed out £11 on a return ticket for 2 adults and 1 child. I was expecting much much more! The train ride lasted less than 10 mins...More

The ramp is steep but yes there is a car for the wheelchair to sit in although it is used for buggies a lot of the time so at peak times there might be a wait

There is not a bus service that runs from near the Grand Hotel. The best option would be to get a taxi and ask them to bring you up to the ticket office at Peasholm Station. A return ticket would be £3.90
