Details

The Audley End Miniature Railway is a delightful 1.5 mile ride on Lord Braybrooke’s private 10 ¼” gauge railway through Estate woodland.

The children all enjoy looking out for the teddies that live in the woods, while the adults are reminded of a nostalgic era, especially on Saturdays and Sundays when we usually haul the carriages with a steam engine.

We have a shop on site which is currently stocked with the Thomas the Tank Engine range, Brio and also Fairy Merchandise and gifts. Books on the history of the Railway together with a selection of confectionery and ice-creams are also available.

Max group size = 60
