Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Dragon Miniature Railway

We are a small volunteer-based organisation running our 7.25"" gauge miniature railway in the grounds of Marple Garden Centre. The railway includes steep gradients, sharp curves, a tunnel and a bridge. Our fleet of hard-working locomotives will haul your train past these and other features around the line.
We operate a friendly railway, with a style reminiscent of BR steam days, when the area was part of the maroon London Midland Region. Kids and adults alike enjoy riding on our miniature trains and regularly come back time and time again. During our existence we have established ourselves as a high-quality attraction within not only our local community, but also further afield.
