Three Railways In One! With more than three miles of railway to travel and a lovely wooded valley to explore, you're in for a Big Day Out.
The Lappa Valley Steam Railway runs on one of the oldest railway trackbeds in Cornwall. Opened in 1849 as a mineral line from Newquay to East Wheal Rose, it later became part of the Great Western Railway's Newquay to Chacewater branch line. This was closed in 1963. In 1974 Eric Booth, the founder of Lappa Valley, reopened part of the line as a narrow-gauge railway.
