Cornwall's secret world
of play and trains

Lappa Valley

What's Here

We are now closed until our Santa Specials starting on Saturday 5th December.


Lappa Valley is the only attraction in Cornwall that transports families on an exciting nostalgic steam train ride into a secret world of traditional fun and family adventures. Children will delight in the thrill of trains and boats, explore nature, let off steam in our outdoor spaces before refuelling in comfort at the fantastic café.
