Pecorama, Beer | Best Things To Do in Devon 2022

Pecorama at Beer, one of East Devon’s leading visitor attractions, is the home to the famous PECO Model Railway Exhibition and the Beer Heights Light Railway.

The Exhibition hall displays wonderfully detailed railway layouts, in many different gauges.

Outdoors, a fleet of miniature steam locomotives pull passenger trains on a mile-long route through the grounds, over bridges, through steep-sided cuttings and a long, dark tunnel!

Pecorama’s award-winning gardens also feature the Millennium Celebration Garden, a series of five celestially themed garden ‘rooms’. The individual garden names of Sun, Moon, Rainbow, Roof and Moat Garden reflect the nature and colour of the flowers, shrubs and trees found in each.

Children can choose from a variety of outdoor play equipment areas whilst you sample some delights from our takeaway outlets across the site.



We are open Tuesday to Saturday every week – 10am until 4pm (last train at 3.30)

We ask that you book online where possible.

My family and I visited Pecorama in Beer and was pleasantly surprised by this unique visit!! It’s a must visit for any age group! The Gardens we’re extremely well kept! And the miniature train was great! The attention to detail is amazing! We also had cream tea in the old fashion train carriage! That was a great experience and the waiter was lovely, telling us the history of the carriage! The cream tea was delicious too!
