Pecorama will remain closed for the whole of 2020 to the general public

Company statement:

We regret to inform you that we have taken the very difficult decision to announce that  Pecorama will remain closed to the general public for the whole 2020 season.

We have very carefully considered our options and investigated the safety implications, made estimates on potential income and considered these alongside the complications added by using parts of the site for manufacturing and sadly come to the conclusion that it is not sensible to try and open this year.

We will continue to maintain the Beer Heights Light Railway and the wonderful gardens and keep our social media accounts updated. We also hope to create some videos of the gardens and railway for your interest and inspiration. The Model Shop will remain open, although currently only for mail-order, collections or by appointment.

Pecorama Membership holders should have all been contacted and refunds issued – if you have not received this, please get in touch.

As restrictions ease, we are re-starting our popular Driver Experience Courses and are also looking at ways of offering private tours of the gardens – all details can be found on this website or please contact us for further information.

We are now turning our attention to shaping the future of Pecorama for 2021 and beyond and we hope to be able to share our plans with you all later in the year.

We would like to thank all our loyal customers for their kindness, support and understanding during this difficult time and we hope that you all stay safe and well.
