Welcome to the Hollycombe Website

Education Facilities and Information


On our Schools’ Days we will be running, by steam power, part of the Edwardian Fairground and the Quarry Railway.

Visitor Facilities

Hollycombe has a purpose-built Visitor & Education Centre which offers under cover facilities. This building includes an Education Room, Café, Souvenir Shop, Toilets and a First Aid room.

There is wheelchair access to the Visitor Centre and train, and most of the site is fairly wheelchair friendly; there is a disabled access toilet in the building. Many groups with disabilities visit us regularly, as do groups of pupils with learning difficulties.

There are no copyright restrictions on photos, video or audio tapes taken during your visit.

No special clothing is required but you should bear in mind the soot and smuts from steam engines. Victorian/Edwardian period clothing adds to the atmosphere.

Risk Assessment

We do not provide a risk assessment for visits but if you would like to visit Hollycombe in advance to carry out your own assessment or to see for yourself what we offer, you will be most welcome on any of our open days. Please contact us in advance to guarantee your free entry (adults only, maximum three).
