Cutteslowe Miniature Railway

Cutteslowe Miniature Railway

Date of Adventure: 23 Oct, 2023

You absolutely must travel in style on the Cutteslowe Miniature Railway, run by a group of dedicated train enthusiasts and volunteers. There are two tracks on the railway on which run passenger carrying trains pulled by steam or diesel locomotives. The excited little faces of children (and adults) are so lovely to see as you queue up and little ones love the toot of the horn or getting a wave from people standing on the bridge.

There is SO much to do at Cutteslowe park: numerous playgrounds, huge sandpit, free splash park, crazy golf, tennis courts, wildlife area, duck pond, beach volleyball court, café and more! It’s easily a whole day adventure!

Did you


Oxford Preservation Trust bought the Victoria Arms pub in 1959 to save the nearly derelict building. Now fully renovated, this rural gem re-opened in 1984. It's still standing proud and serving Oxford’s pub-goers every day!

Fancy buying me a ko-fi?
