A Railway Adventure in Eastbourne. Travel behind the famous one-eighth scale miniature locomotives as they meander for nearly a mile around the beautiful country park. Enjoy a pleasant stroll around the five-acre lake where nature and wildlife may be seen in their natural habitats. Relax in the prize-winning tea gardens with a beverage, lunch or Cream Tea from the railway style cafe. Picnic areas, model railways and the Railway Gift Shop. Also for the children is an adventure playground to help "let off steam".

The EMSR is just lovely and ideal if you have young children. Everything about it was lovely and great value. Seeing a family of green woodpeckers made our day too!

Came here for a morning to keep the kids entertained. They loved the train rides and the different play areas. Also the walk round the lake knackered them right out. Would return, staff were really friendly and food was good.
