model railway expo

16 & 17 June 2018

Across the weekend of the 16th - 17th June, we will be hosting a Model Railway Expo in our Engine Shed - just in time for Father's Day! 

The models on display will be both modern image and from the steam era, including a selection of mainline 00 and end to end 00 gauges. The event will showcase a variety of track layouts in different sizes with running models, and we will also have a trade stand attending on both days. 

No pre-booking is required, as entry is included with standard admission into the gardens.

‘A truly fantastic day out. My wife and I were bowled over by the amazing spring colours of rhododendrons and azaleas and there was literally colour everywhere. There are beautiful areas to walk through as well as places to sit. We took a picnic in the hope of being able to sit by one of the ponds and were not disappointed – the reflections were as spectacular as the real thing! The next thing we want to do is return in the autumn to see the colours change as it must be beautiful’
