  • Check the weather

    Pecorama is located high on the hillside, less than a mile from the sea and often seems to have its own micro-climate. Therefore, if you are planning a visit and the general forecast is not that good, why not telephone us for an up-to-date report of what is actually happening here at Pecorama – the chances are we are having a lovely day!

Stunning gardens with sea views

FULL STEAM AHEAD!

Welcome back...

PECORAMA is one of East Devon’s leading tourist attractions, set high on the hillside above the picturesque fishing village of Beer. Visitors can expect a great day out for all the family, enjoying beautiful themed gardens with stunning sea views; home-made food and a selection of refreshments from our outside kiosk and, of course, rides on the award-winning Beer Heights Light Railway where a fleet of miniature steam locomotives pull passenger- carrying trains on a mile long route through the grounds, over bridges, through steep-sided cuttings and a long, dark tunnel! We also have four large outside play areas, a lovely Wildway walk with stunning views, which incorporates our beautiful pond and our zip wire for the braver ones amongst you!

Model railway enthusiasts will know the Company is a brand leader in the making of model railway track – superbly detailed layouts are on display in the Model Railway Exhibition next to our model shop.

We ask that, if possible, you book tickets for your visit on our website as we wish to avoid people congregating in queue lines, to try to keep our staff and customers safer. You are, however, able to purchase tickets at our Lower Ticket Office onsite. 

Tickets will cover the Gardens, Model Railway Exhibition, Model shop and one train ride on our award winning Beer Heights Light Railway.

Tickets are £9.50 for Adults and children aged 5 and over.
