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!

The name PECO is the registered trademark for Pritchard Patent Product Co. Ltd. and PECO Publications and Publicity Ltd, both of which are devoted to the hobby of model railways.
The forward-looking family business started trading in 1946 and still today virtually all production is undertaken at its headquarters in Beer. Likewise the magazines Railway Modeller and Continental Modeller are edited and put together by our enthusiastic team each month within the same building.
The offices and production area stand high on the hillside offering wonderful views of Beer village and the coast beyond. It is therefore quite natural that many railway enthusiasts visit the home of PECO and the site has become one of the county’s most important tourist attractions, Pecorama. The exhibition of model railways, the Beer Heights Light Railway and the extensive gardens are all there to inspire and enjoy.
