Cockington Green Gardens
A visit to our unique display provides an opportunity for students to experience some of the world’s great buildings, in just one visit. It’s education and fun wrapped into one!
Night-time and after hours openings
Our spectacular display can be viewed at night. Visit on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening and see exhibits transformed by thousands of tiny LED lights into a night-time wonderland. A ride on the steam train is included for all night-time visitors, providing students with a spectacular overview of the illuminations.
Miniature steam train rides
There are very few places where children can enjoy a train ride drawn by a genuine steam locomotive, moreover one fired by environmentally-friendly gas. (Daytime rides incur a small additional charge.)
Enjoy our group picnic area, nestled on our front lawns. Bring your own, or catering options are available.
Meet and greet
Schools will be welcomed and receive a brief history along with some interesting facts on the display during their visit.
9.30 am—5 pm (last admission 4.15 pm) 7 days (closed Christmas Day and Boxing Day) Tuesday and Wednesday night openings from 6.30 pm (last entry 8.30 pm).
