Beer’s leading tourist attractions is set on the hillside above the village. Pecorama is home to the world’s foremost manufacturer of model railway track and the award–winning Beer Heights Light Railway, a 71/4 inch gauge miniature railway with coal-fired steam locomotives that carry adults and children on a mile-long ride through the attractive flower-filled gardens that include the Millennium Garden – a series of celestially themed gardens that are linked by scented walkways, special water features and stunning stonework.
The site also houses the PECO Model Railway Exhibition, a shop and an Orion Pullman carriage that is now a railway-themed restaurant serving morning coffee, lunchtime snacks and afternoon teas with homemade cakes and Devon cream teas.
A new attraction for 2014 is The Pecorama Play Station, a purpose built indoor adventure park for children – ensuring that fun can be had whatever the weather
