Axminster & Seaton
PECORAMA, one of Devon’s leading visitor attractions located high on the hillside above the fishing village of Beer, has long been known as the home of the famous PECO Model Railway Exhibition and the Beer Heights Light Railway.
The Exhibition hall displays wonderfully detailed layouts in many gauges of track, with push-button controls enabling children to operate the trains whilst outdoors, a fleet of miniature steam locomotives pull passenger carrying trains on a mile long route through the grounds, over bridges, through steep-sided cuttings and a long, dark tunnel!
A ride on the railway allows visitors to see much of the gardens at Pecorama plus glorious views over Lyme Bay, however the heart of the grounds must be explored on foot. The Millennium Celebration Garden consists of five very different garden “rooms“. Each is linked by attractive walkways whilst stunning stonework and special water features continually catch the eye. The individual garden names of Sun, Moon, Rainbow, Roof and Moat Garden reflect the nature and colour of the flowers, shrubs and trees to be found in each.
To entertain the smaller ones amongst us, there are four outside play areas – including a Pirate ship and the accompanying adults can enjoy refreshments of home-made cakes, sandwiches and drinks from one of our takeaway kiosks. We also have a wildway walk, pond, zip wire and bug hotel to explore.
PECORAMA is open from Easter until the end of October, Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm. For all details of and to book your tickets on-online, please go to Pecorama.co.uk.
