Groudle Glen railway
In Groudle Glen, there is a small railway built many years ago to transport visitors in the Glen to view Sea Lions and Polar Bears kept in enclosures near the end. These animals have long since departed, and the railway became derelict, running for the last time in 1963. However, the railway has now been restored, and although you won't see animals, you can enjoy a nice cup of tea at a small café.
