Enjoyed a long weekend in Southport and used the Lakeside Miniature Railway to travel from the far end of the Marine Lake to the pier. It is a very pleasant trip by the side of the lake.The Driver is very helpful and friendly.

A great very old minature railway. Goes along about a mile, has diesel powered mock steam locomotives. A pleasant ride along the park, pleasant ride if the weather is nice. Over 100 years old.

Any 'oldie' with memories of the age of steam or any 'youngie' with kids would love this miniature railway. Riding on one of twenty one working models of famous trains including Mallard and Thomas plus great food in the diner is a not-to-be-forgotten experience.

Our little girl enjoyed the ride! An easy way to get from one side to the other and not too expensive either.

This is a real minature train that goes from the funfair park to the retail park at a resonable return rate. A great time for children

You can sit back, relax and take in everything around you, whether it be the nature on route, waving at children that you pass, or watching the different things on the lake, it's what you make of it.

Had a visit to Southport with limited time and had to choose a few things to do. This was one of the things we did and it was great. Kids loved it but not a very long ride for the money.
