Bank Holiday Monday saw family Lewis head off to the Thames Ditton miniature railway; miniature trains being driven around a fantastic track and the best bit is that they take passengers. Parents, kids and the odd train spotter straddle the carriages, put your feet on the board and away we go. The train enthusiasts have a great time driving the trains over viaducts, through tunnels and stopping at signals. This is a really great afternoon out for families with young kids. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
The miniature railway is open from Easter Sunday and Monday, then the first Sunday of each month and every bank holiday Sunday and Monday up to and including the first Sunday in October. Trains depart from 2pm and it’s all over by 5.30pm.
Top tip – at 4.30pm everyone goes off to get tea for the kids. Take a picnic or some snacks and enjoy last hour, virtually queue free!
You can ride unlimited for £6.50 each or get a family ticket for 4 for £23.
