Experience the
magic of steam
in miniature

Open every Sunday
(May - Oct)

Welcome to the Great Cockcrow Railway

Nestled in the 'green belt' of Surrey, the Great Cockcrow Railway provides a very unique experience. Open every Sunday throughout the summer months (May to October), the railway allows you to be transported back to the days of steam and the world of miniature - 7¼ inches to be precise.

The GCR is truly a special place for both enthusiasts and families alike. Featuring a wide range of locomotives (both steam and instant start) and a fully working signalling system.

All of this operated by a team of volunteers who give their time and expertise to provide a family fun day out.

Sorry, but we are unable to carry children under 2 years of age. Please see the FAQs page for more details.
