What’s Here

Lappa Valley is one of the best family days out in Cornwall. Take a nostalgic steam train ride through beautiful Cornish countryside, and arrive in our secret valley of fun and adventure. We're a place to make memories as a family, roaming free and enjoying play in the great outdoors!


There’s a wealth of family-friendly activities to enjoy here at Lappa Valley. From our boating lake to our crazy golf course, from outdoor adventures to indoor play, from our musical trail to our woodland walks, there’s plenty of fun to be had on our 35-acre site.

Meet the Engines

We have a wonderful fleet of steam engines here at Lappa Valley, all with their own story and history behind them. We are lucky enough to have engines designed by some of the foremost railway engineers in the industry.


The Whistlestop Café, located right in the centre of our attraction, offers a range of excellent light bites, lunches, snacks and drinks all year round. We offer homemade comfort food which all the family can enjoy, using a range of local suppliers. With hot meals, sandwiches, soups and a tempting array of cakes available, there will be something for everyone.

Gift Shop

No family day out with children would be complete without a trip to the gift shop! We have a range of toys, gifts and Lappa Valley merchandise on sale. We are committed to reducing our plastic use in the shop and increasing our range of sustainable toys and ethical suppliers. Pop in for a look around as you wait for your train to take you back to your car.

Accessibility and Inclusivity

If you're planning to visit us and you have any accessibility requirements, our team will be really glad to help you. We want every child to enjoy the magic of Lappa Valley!

We've given a lot of families additional support to make sure that everyone can have a wonderful time. We would love you to talk with us about your needs, so we can make your family visit as enjoyable as possible.
