Found this little gem of a place as our little one loves trains. It was closed to the public when we turned up but we were offered to come and look around anyway as the volunteers were working...Every member we came across were amazing. The history of the place is awesome. We got to see model trains working and the wildlife walk is beautiful. They've done a fantastic job. Lovely picnic spots dotted around. The highlight of our little ones day was to sit and watch the trains go by and wave to the drivers who gave him a toot toot as they went past! He also loved the toy train tables and would of happily spent hours playing with them. A lovely afternoon spent in the sun. Thanks to all the guys there making us feel really welcome! You really are doing a fantastic job.

Thank you Kelgee007 - We love your comments - and your Big 5 Stars! Really makes our voluntary work worthwhile .. I am sure you appreciate it has been a challenge over the years - But it is amazing, truly amazing just what can be created with determination, passion and desire? Plus abundant help from nature? We volunteers have a desire to create something special for everyone - man made that looks natural, not far from the city centre of our wonderful 'City of Peterborough'. We were so proud in 2018 after recording over 13,000 Volunteer Hours in one year we won the 'Queen's Award for Voluntary Service' ... Thank you once again for your comments on your 'Lovely afternoon out' at the 'Railworld Wildlife Haven' ..

Brian and his team of volunteers do an excellent job in running rail world. It's so peaceful, you'd never guess it was in the centre of Peterborough. There's so much to look at both in terms of the wildlife side (ponds, plants, bees, baby moorhens etc) and then there's the rail side, with a mine of information, and Victorian tools and structures dotted around to take a look at. I'd recommend a visit to anyone thinking of going, and if Brian is around you're sure to get a potted history of how it all started, and how it's been built up over the years.

Thank you Shercostar for taking the time to write your excellent review about the 'Railworld Wildlife Haven' - It certainly made our day .. We will share your wonderful comments with all our fellow volunteers ..... Rev Richard Paten purchase the derelict power station coal yard in 1985 - Then set up the registered charity and donated the land to it! Since then volunteers have been beavering away in true 'Circular Economy' style - reusing, repurposing and recycling anything and everything and helped by the powers of nature, we have created something special, metres from our Peterborough City Centre for everyone to enjoy ... Amazing what can be achieved when we all work together .. Thank you so much for the big 5 Stars - So pleased you liked and enjoyed your visit Shercostar..

What an awesome 3 hours spent here today. £10 for my wide, son and I was a bargain and we so could have spent longer there. We even paid £50 for the annual family membership on the way out as we will go back!
Well done Brian and all the volunteers for such a wonderful place to visit.

Those words are 'Music to the ears of everyone of our volunteers' 147Mike46 - When Rev Richard Paten started this volunteer project back in 1985 - He spent all his own money acquiring the land - He then set up the Registered Charity and donated all the land! There was no money left to do anything! But volunteers, working alongside companies, groups and individuals have helped create what we have today - An inner city green space to enjoy ! and lean about 'Our Wonderful World' we all call home ... We have volunteers that like creating habitat and volunteers that like creating model railways - Others that don't mind what they do! Seems to work every well .. We have so many talented, marvellous volunteers and we love them all .. We are so pleased you like what we have done 147Mike46 ... Thank you for your time and thank you for your Big 5 Stars - Wonderful

Visited with my Brother after a trip on the Nene Valley Railway
This place is real Gem, my Brother and I are Train enthusiasts so to find a viewing area next to the freight line was amazing, it has been built like a signal box.
There is another viewing area further down too, as well as an amazing model railway
We also enjoyed the wild life areas and water features if you fancy a drink there’s a cafe toilets and loads of picnic benches.
My Brother and I also met Brian Pearce what a wonderful man, His vision and commitment to this venture is outstanding and a credit to the Peterborough community.
If you get chance visit Railworld Wildlife Haven

Hello Andy195877 - So good to hear you enjoyed you visit and nice to read all your positive comments - Plus of course - that wonderful - all important 5 Stars! Thank you .. I remember talking to you and your brother so clearly - You were from Doncaster - I remember cycling to Doncaster from Grimsby where I lived when I was just 13 years old .. Over 50 miles each way! - We had heard that they built steam locomotives there and we wanted to see it happening - But they wouldn't let us in to have a look !! We were so annoyed after biking all that way! The Railworld Wildlife Haven has been such a challenge - I find it hard to believe sometimes that we didn't give up! But they say - 'The Harder you Try - The Luckier you get'? That is certainly true ... There are some wonderful people and wonderful companies out there that have helped us ... All working together for a 'Better World'? Back in 1985 it was an old derelict power station coal yard, completely lacking in biodiversity, the site was purchased and donated by our founder Rev Richard Paten .... We hope to welcome you and your brother back soon.

I dropped my grandson here for him to do his volunteering as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. How did I never know Railworld Wildlife Haven existed? Oh my goodness how beautiful is this place. You would never know you were in the heart of Peterborough city centre you could easily think you were tucked away in Cornwall. The place is looked after and run by volunteers. They rely purely on donations to carry out the ongoing work. I am amazed at the admission price, adults £4 and children £2. There are several places you can sit and have your own picnic. We had an 11 year old with us, she was very impressed and wanted to go back again. I will certainly go back again for another wander around.

Oh Cornishsonia1952 - Wonderful words that will certainly warm the hearts of all our fabulous volunteers .. Thank you so much .. We have looked after and cared for our 'Duke of Edinburgh' people for many years and the 'World' in Globe Hall was marked out by two brothers, Gordon and Simon Ball doing their DofE - Back in 1998! Thank you also for the fabulous Five Stars! So pleased that you enjoyed you visit.... Some fabulous people have helped create the Wildlife Haven, features and the Model Railways we have today - We say 'Entertain and Educate about our amazing planet we all call our home? - Education can and should be fun... Hard to believe Cornishsonia1952 - that the site was an old derelict power station coal yard, purchased and donated by our founder Rev Richard Paten .. Thank you for your time ...

I visited Railworld on the 8th of April 2022.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. I was taking video and photos of the frieght trains in the car park. A member of staff came over and told me that he would like to show a better spot for taking pictures. What a view from the viewing platform, i got some amazing pictures. I had a fantastic day and good chat. The staff took care of me. I will be back. It is a fantastic place to visit, lots to do for families. If you like taking pictures of the freight trains this is the perfect spot! Trust me you will not be disappointed. They offer member ship for a year which if very affordable and helps them keep the keep open. Worth every penny! Thank you to everyone!

Kind regards

Andy

Hello Trek62062552804 - So good to hear that you enjoyed your visit .. Makes every volunteer that works so hard, feel so proud that you like what we have done .. It is so wonderful to hear your positive comments - Thank you so much for the fabulous Five Stars! The last 2 years have been a challenge for us all and it has been so nice for our volunteers to welcome people back to see us ... The 'Bird Hide and Viewing Platform' was supported by four local companies and our talented volunteers built the lot! Impressive isn't it? Hard to believe it was an old derelict power station coal yard, purchased and donated by our founder Rev Richard Paten .. We wanted to create an inner city, biodiverse, haven for wildlife - and we feel we are getting there?- It is so refreshing to see the 200 saplings that we won in the Peterborough Telegraph's 'Clear-up a Grot Spot' competition have all grown (some over 40ft high now!) and helped create what we have today .. Thank you for your time ...

A small but enjoyable place within a short walk of the city centre. My son (8yo) loves it so much we got a season ticket. We go every 2 or 3 weeks. The highlight for us is the model railway. The signal box is another favorite especially for seeing the rail traffic going through Peterborough.

Hi Mickey R - Thank you for taking the time to comment and for your Fabulous 5 Star assessment! So please you enjoy our project ... We maybe only a small group of volunteers - But we love doing what we do! It's just what you get into I suppose Mickey R ? It is so nice when family's like yours enjoy what we are doing ... The Nene Junction Signal Box - Now a Bird Hide and Viewing Platform - Was also recreated by our volunteers, the original one was demolished in 1970's - But the base was still there! So our determined, talented volunteers - (the two in charge of this specific project were well over 70!) aided by financial support from local companies created the attraction over a 2 year period! Thanks again Mickey R for your support - Paul and Bob are beavering away on the Garden Railway extension - soon to be over 4,000 sqft! It will take a while - But we are sure you will enjoy as we endeavour to 'Entertain and Educate' about our amazing world we all call home ..

Another superb visit to Railworld yesterday. I have a six year old and a three year old and despite the weather they absolutely loved it. From the toy trains and model railway to the adventures we had in the nature haven, we played hide and seek and acted out the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff on the bridge.

The volunteers are so friendly and helpful and put so much effort into creating a wonderful place for all the family.

If your children want somewhere to explore, this is definitely the place to come. We will be visiting again.

Thank you so much joannewR6562DJ - Such wonderful words and wonderfully positive comments ... The project really has been a 'labour of love' - We all hope people, young and older, and of course our wildlife love the place as much as we have loved creating it for them all ... It is so nice to hear that you spend time with your children helping them to understand things .... they are like little sponges and absorb everything ... We started when Rev Richard Paten brought all the land back in 1985 - Set up a registered charity - Donated it all to the project and volunteers have been beavering away ever since - It's what you get into I suppose? In 2018 we won the 'Queen's Award for Voluntary Service' after completing over 13,000 recorded volunteer hours! Thank you joannewR6562DJ - for your big 5 Stars and your fabulous comments

Really enjoyed the visit. They have worked really hard to make this area into a little "secret garden".

Hi Mags t - So nice to hear those kind words ... Sorry about the delay in thanking you ... The 'Secret Garden' has taken volunteers over 25 years to create and it's been one heck of a challenge .. We have never had any core funding, but we have just carried on regardless - We always say - there is always something we can do ... The 3 aqueduct sections from 1840 were donated by British Rail - We won a completion to restore them, installation of them took about 8 years. The landscaping, ponds and waterfalls took many more years and we won 200 trees in 'Clear up a Grot Spot' competition! The 'Globe Hall Earth Centre' took over 19 years to complete ... Volunteers made the 'World' .. It's driven by a redundant car park barrier gate drive! We do not waste anything - We try to be 'Just like Nature' ... We wanted to create an intriguing, exciting place to explore and help people learn about our amazing world we all call our home? Thank you for your time Mags t

On a day trip to the city, I was keen to visit this site and was not disappointed. Welcomed by two volunteers, with one explaining the map, ensured I followed the recommended route. I was also advised, if any trains were not running, that I was welcome to press the appropriate button. As I meandered round the site the main purpose of my visit was to see the superb model railway and was duly impressed by the layout, scenery, and trains. It was lovely to hear the squeals of excitement from visiting children and I suspect adults were equally happy even if a bit more restrained. As an OAP the price of £3 was incredible value for money and the long walk (signs estimated 15 mins) from the station to reach this place was well worth it.

Wonderful to hear your kind comments David S ... Music to the ears of every volunteer that keeps this amazing project going, moving forward and expanding .. The project was started over 30 years ago by an incredible man call Rev Richard Paten - he brought all the land and donated it to the Registered Charity! We have been beavering away ever since! The north site was an old power station coal yard ... We landscaped it, restored and installed all 4 Victorian bridges .... It was an incredible challenge - But we did it! We still have a long was to go we only have two brick buildings - all the rest are old portable ones .. But we will get there and thank you again for coming to see us David S and taking the time to comment ..
