A beautiful little railway running along the beach, much of the track being through the Fishrmen's Quarter with all its fishing accoutrements, boats, and tackle, and little retails huts. Tiny locos, and basic carriages, just made for children of all ages. Just right for Hastings...More

The railway line is a very short trip but toddlers will enjoy seeing the engines and riding on it. Goes a little way along the promenade.

Lovely to ride on a miniature railway at the seaside. We were amazed at the number of trains in action. Lovely to see younger people working on the trains. If only it went all the way along the front to the pier!

A smashing little seaside town railway. Great for the kids and also for oldies like me who love them. Its a pastime that starts age 1 and can last a lifteime. An essentil half hour when in Hastings especially with the kids

A nice little trip. You can also get 5 for the price of 4 return which is decent. For the short journey though (a 5 min walk) should be cheaper.

A comparatively short ride compared the some, but quite cheap too. We walked along the seafront with young children and used this to return to the car park - this worked out quite well as the children were starting to tire. Our 2 year old...More

I’m not sure, but ask at the kiosk where you buy the ticket, there’s lots of children on it so there must be a place to leave prams
