Pecorama at Beer, one of East Devon’s leading visitor attractions, is the home to the famous PECO Model Railway Exhibition and the Beer Heights Light Railway.
The Exhibition hall displays wonderfully detailed railway layouts, in many different gauges.
Outdoors, a fleet of miniature steam locomotives pull passenger trains on a mile-long route through the grounds, over bridges, through steep-sided cuttings and a long, dark tunnel!
Pecorama also features the Millennium Celebration Garden, a series of five celestially themed garden ‘rooms’ The individual garden names of Sun, Moon, Rainbow, Roof and Moat Garden reflect the nature and colour of the flowers, shrubs and trees found in each.
Children can choose from a variety of Activity Play Areas whilst an extensive programme of entertainment runs each summer, with shows from mid July until early September. Whatever the weather, clowns , jesters and magicians provide entertainment under cover of the PECO Marquee.
Also open is the Pecorama 'Play Station', the fantastic mult-tiered indoor play area for children up to 12 years of age.
The 'Play Station' is the perfect place for a Birthday Party. Please contact us for details.
Regrettably only assistance dogs are permitted within the gardens.
