Thank-you for a wonderful 7yrs!

At Easter 2020 our trains will run for the very last time here in Sutton Bonington. We’ve had a wonderful time playing trains however it’s time for us to take a break and spend some time together as a family as we prepare for our next little railway adventure. Arthur is fast growing up and we want to make sure we are there for him during his first years at school.


It’s our hope that after a couple years of being home for Arthur at the weekends, we'll be able to reopen in a new, bigger home: somewhere with a little more space for a play area, car park, a larger railway & model village and perhaps space for parties and groups.
What Happens Next?
We’ll be open for selected weekends from January to April until we hold our final goodbye Goodbye Party at Easter Weekend.
Saying Goodbye


The absolute best thing about what we’ve achieved is not the thousands of visitor numbers we’ve marked up or your very kind online reviews… it’s the friendships we’ve made and the happy faces we’ve seen. Knowing that we have to say goodbye (for now) is absolutely the hardest thing we’ve had to do.
Thank-you for all of the happy times you’ve given us.
Angela, Arthur & Martin


"Lovely little place and staff were really helpful and friendly.

My son (aged 2.5) loved it, especially the fact that he was allowed to let his dinosaur ride the train! My little girl (aged 1.5) also loved it and enjoyed looking at the lights and climbing in the tunnels!

Food was homemade and really tasty too"
