Porterswick Junction Light Railway

Take a mile-long ride on our scenic miniature railway that takes you right around the park.


Pulled by our lovable diesel locomotive ‘Albert No 1’, climb aboard for a  journey travelling under bridges, through deep cuttings, and past forest trees – there’s even the thrill of a snaking tunnel. Board the train at the Mansion House station and travel around the whole park as many times as you like… you get unlimited rides all day!

About Our Train

Albert No 1 is our diesel/petrol locomotive built in Devon by Roanoke of Barnstaple, a family firm specialising in both model steam and diesel engines. Albert was delivered to Hidden Valley over ten years ago and has hauled thousands of passengers since being with us, and has become a firm favourite with visitors.

  • Albert leaves the Mansion House platform every hour, so get ‘all board’ for a fun ride.
    It’s free to ride on our train as many times as you like during your visit.
