Overview

PECORAMA - one of East Devon's leading visitor attractions, is set on a hillside above the pictureque fishing village of Beer. It is home to the mile-long Beer Heights Light Railway with its fleet of miniature steam locomotives; the famous PECO Model Railway Exhibition featuring superbly detailed layouts in every major gauge and the PECO Millennium Celebration Garden, five stunning Garden "rooms" based on a celestial theme. Children's activity areas feature the wonderful new indoor 'Play Staion' plus an extensive range of outdoor play equipment, whilst grown-ups can try their skill and stamina on the Crazy Golf course and Fitness Trail. There is a varied programme of entertainment throughout the summer season, including children's shows featuring jesters, clowns and magicians performing under cover of our own big top, the PECO Marquee. The displayed opening times are for the summer season only (Easter to October). During our low season, the Beer Heights Light Railway and Gardens close but the Model Railway Exhibition & Shop, Garden Room Restaurant and Play Station Soft Play area remain open. Please see our website for these facilities’ winter opening hours.

Took two young children to Pecorama. They enjoyed the miniature railway and the play areas. The weather was great which makes all the difference. Look out for the voucher which gives you a free upgrade to first class.

It's excellent to hear that you have both been coming to Pecorama for years. All of the gardens are beautiful, but the sun garden is particularly nice and peaceful. It's great you both had a brilliant day with us again.

The facility has nice gardens and a train ride to take you around and see areas you might not feel like walking to - children would enjoy this.

That's great you liked the model railway exhibition. The paths can be steep, but we are lucky to have amazing views because of it. Mike will be pleased to hear you enjoyed the train ride.
