The Audley End Miniature Railway is a magical day out for families including a miniature railway, enchanted fairy and elf walk, adventure play area, nature corner, woodland cafe and gift shop. 
Enjoy a magical journey on our miniature railway which takes you deep into our enchanting woods. You’ll be sure to spot woodland animals along the route, and perhaps a teddy bear or two.  

The train will take you back to the picnic field where children can let off steam on the adventure play area. Our bespoke playground equipment is sure to fire up both imaginative and physical play. 

Families can also explore the enchanted Fairy and Elf Walk, which winds through the magical woods where children can spot tiny fairies and elves living in harmony with nature.  

The Nature Corner encompasses our wildlife pond, fascinating bug hotels, try and spot a worm or two hiding in the wormery, and if you’re very quiet and still, the bird boxes might just reveal some feathered friends.  

The Woodland café serves locally sourced and homemade food.

We have everything you need for a memorable family day out in the great outdoors, whatever the season.  

All tickets must be purchased online and shown to our admissions staff on arrival. We are also a cashless site so only accept card payments.
