Attractions at Gyspy Wood Park

a day full of family fun

Experience enchanting moments. For the littlest ones and the whole family.  There’s never a dull moment at Gypsy Wood Park. Here are just some of the attractions we have

Woody’s Railway

All aboard for the Gypsy Wood Express! You can enjoy a magical ride on Woody’s Train through part of the park for almost ¾ km. The train and track has been specially made for us here at Gypsy Wood Park by Cromar White, and it’s a 10¼” gauge tear drop railway with turn table. Woody’s Train is powered by a green and pollution free electric motor and it takes up to 24 passengers.

*One ride on Woody’s Train is included with the ticket price for every visitor. Additional rides can be purchased for £1.50. Get 1 free ride when you buy 4 additional rides. Available to purchase from the shop.

The train will run between 11.00am and 4.00pm.

Outdoor Garden Railway

Gypsy Wood’s ‘G’ scale garden railway is a long established favourite with visitors of all ages, having been built at the beginning in 2004 and substantially expanded and modified since then. A variety of model trains running on over half a kilometre of track. They travel over and under bridges, go through tunnels and pass lots of buildings that are all placed in a beautiful garden setting which includes a quarry, mountain railway, large central station and a long bridge over a pond.

Kids aged 9 to 90 will love the interactive play buttons so they can move Thomas the Tank engine and his friends.

Meet the animals

Gypsy Wood Park is home to a variety of different animals. They all love living here and they are always excited to meet new friends. Come and see us to visit the ponies, alpacas, donkeys, pygmy goats, pot-bellied pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs and more.

At 1:30pm everyday there’s the chance to meet some of the animals.  You can get up close to some of our friendliest residents and touch, hold and even brush them. In peak season there are plenty of animal activities like donkey grooming and sheep racing.

If you’d like to feed the animals you can buy bags of feed from the shop – but don’t forget to give the right feed to the right animal!
